Social and Emotional Development*

Mar 7, 2016

This session will provide participants the understanding of what healthy social-emotional development is, its importance to later learning, and specific ways to support healthy social-emotional development.

Healthy social-emotional development involves the ability to form satisfying, trusting relationships with others, play, communicate, learn, face challenges, and experience and handle a full range of emotions. It is through relationships that young children develop these skills and attributes. Starting from birth, babies are learning who they are by how they are treated. Loving relationships provide young children a sense of comfort, safety, and confidence. They teach young children how to form friendships, communicate emotions, and to deal with challenges. Strong, positive relationships also help children develop trust, empathy, compassion, and a sense of right and wrong. This session will provide participants the understanding of what healthy social-emotional development is, its importance to later learning, and specific ways to support healthy social-emotional development.
