New Social-Emotional Wellbeing Resource for Parents

Trying Together has released a new social-emotional wellbeing resource for parents through the Parenting Together Pathway.

About

The new video, Social and Emotional Wellbeing, provides an overview of what social-emotional wellness is in early childhood and includes topics of why it’s important, and how you and your child can work together to encourage your child’s social-emotional growth forming close, secure, meaningful relationships.

The Parenting Together Pathway is a video-based learning series to provide high-quality information on early childhood development to parents and caregivers in Allegheny County and surrounding areas. Launched in April 2021, the Parenting Together Pathway provides families the opportunity to learn more about: brain development; play; interactions and relationships; technology; child care; advocacy; early intervention; and safety to better support their children’s healthy growth.

Fostering Resilience Through Social-Emotional Learning

Join edWeb for an upcoming webinar, Fostering Resilience Through Social-Emotional Learning. Interested individuals can register for this virtual webinar online.

Additional Information

The challenges and trauma of the ongoing pandemic have had a huge impact on students and teachers, and the associated social and academic challenges will be seen and felt for many years to come. Meeting the social-emotional needs of students is more important than ever—and Dr. Kathy Perez can help educators make social-emotional learning (SEL) a priority in their schools and foster resilience in themselves and others.

Author of The Social-Emotional Learning Toolbox, Dr. Perez will share her wisdom in this strategy-based, interactive edWebinar. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Understand the impact of trauma on the brain and behavior
  • Reach relationship-resistant students to increase cooperation
  • Create a culture of compassion that embraces marginalized students
  • Implement practical, trauma-informed interventions to help students learn
  • Use techniques to improve students’ attitudes and beliefs about self, others, and school
  • Empower students to build confidence, cooperation, curiosity, and communication skills
  • Lay the groundwork for a lifetime of resilience

This edWebinar is geared towards K-12 classroom teachers, school counselors, and school and district administrators. There will be time at the end of the presentation for participants to ask questions.
