Online: Choosing Courage in a Climate of Fear
In our current climate of trauma and fear, participants will learn to identify and respond respectfully to behaviors related to children’s fears. Participants will work with peers to brainstorm curriculum activities to help children address their fears and share together to create a larger curriculum toolbox of ideas for all participants.
There will be an article to read prior to the training, as well as an optional family survey about children’s fears to help inform our work together during the training. Programs that are not currently open or able to survey their families are are still welcome to join, too.
This class will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 pm as a live, online class (it will not be recorded). Those who register and pay will be emailed a link to register with Zoom, our online platform.
