A Reflective Approach to Supporting Infant and Toddler Social and Emotional Health

Conference Year: 

2014

Primary Speaker name: 

Working with and caring for infants, toddlers and their families is relationship-based and requires us to engage our emotions as well as our intellect. This interactive session will provide early care and educational professionals an opportunity to apply a self-reflective process through which they will learn to recognize the personal factors that influence their caregiving practices and decisions. User-friendly tips and tools will be provided through the use of case scenarios and videos and offer opportunity for reflection and dialogue as participants determine what infant, toddler and family information to consider when promoting social and emotional development and taking a relationship-based approach to challenging behavior.
