Description

Approved by Illinois Early Intervention Training Project for:

  • 1.5 hours in Working with Families

Behavior in the service of expressing emotions, self regulation and participating in relationships might look messy and might even be confusing and challenging to the child development professional. 

In this workshop we’ll examine the ways in which young children attempt to participate in a relationship with adults and, perhaps more importantly, our role in responding to their attempts. We’ll explore the ways in which this serve and return influences brain development and  lays the foundation for self-regulation. Participants will discuss concepts such as responsive caregiving, co-regulation, and social communication in the service of optimal growth and development.
