Social Emotional Training For Teachers and Parents
Host: Scarlett Lewis; Founder, Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement
Guest: Caroline Maguire; Author, “Why Will No One Play With Me?”
No one knows the implications of COVID, racial tensions, election fall out, school closures and openings that look different, lack of mental health supports, social distancing and social isolation on our children’s mental health, social skills, academic performance and decision-making skills. The data is clear – humans require social networks and interaction. But what happens when children are starved of socialization or their mental health is not treated? What impact does this have on society?
Social, emotional and behavioral skills are more important – and more difficult to build – than ever before.
In this webinar, Caroline Maguire, M.Ed. and Scarlett Lewis will discuss the potential long-term effects of the pandemic on children’s social, emotional, and cognitive development and what parents and teachers can do NOW to strengthen children’s social skills. They will describe the red flags of exaggerated anxiety and isolation and explain how to use Why Will No One Play With Me? and the 4 core elements of the Choose Love Program to help children manage their behaviors and emotions, build healthy relationships and make good decisions.
