REL Webinar: Supporting Emotion Regulation in Early Childhood New

You are invited to participate in a webinar from REL Central to learn about research-based strategies for creating supportive environments and using specific teaching strategies to foster the development of emotion regulation skills in early childhood settings.

Crystal Day-Hess, assistant director for the Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy at the University of Denver, will present strategies to implement recommendations from the What Works Clearinghouse practice guide Reducing Behavior Problems in the Elementary School Classroom.

By the end of this webinar, participants will have learned the following:

  • The role of emotion regulation in regulating elementary and early childhood student behavior.
  • The recommendations from the What Works Clearinghouse practice guide Reducing Behavior Problems in the Elementary School Classroom.
  • Multiple strategies for implementing Recommendations 2 (“Modify the classroom learning environment to decrease problem behavior”) and 3 (“Teach and reinforce new skills to increase appropriate behavior and preserve a positive classroom climate”) from the practice guide and the adjustments necessary to make them relevant to their classroom settings and populations.

This webinar is intended for school district personnel, coaches, administrators, and teachers at the early childhood levels (grades pre-K–3) who are seeking to support the development of emotion regulation in students.

What We Know About the Brain in Early Childhood
October 9, 2018

Neither scientists nor educators are ready to prescribe MRI informed practices for improving learning in individual children. However, new research does demand that we take seriously how this new knowledge of the developing brain can better inform and influence practice, and ultimately the development and learning of all children; especially those facing adversity.

This webinar training will review the latest and best research on brain development, and consider how new findings are bringing us back to old school methods.

Trauma Informed Practices That Can Benefit All Children
October 16, 2018

When children experience trauma during the early years, it can change the trajectory of development, impact normative behaviors, and present an additional layer of complexity to individualizing practices and methods. In this workshop we will unpack how trauma impacts brain development to help us understand the meaning behind behaviors and develop strategies and practices that grow resiliency and mitigate the impact of toxic stress. Specifically, strategies such as building protective factors, strong relationships, social and emotional skills, and implementing whole school supports will be reviewed as a way to help children with a trauma history best learn and grow, as well as to support the healthy development of all children.
