CASEL CARES is a new initiative that connects the SEL community with experts to address how SEL can be most helpful in today’s circumstances.
The development of young children is profoundly influenced by experience. Experiences—good and bad—shape the organization of the brain. This ultimately impacts emotional, social, cognitive, and physiological functioning. Insights into this process come from understanding brain development. Various forms of trauma are pervasive problems in our culture, especially today given the traumatic effect of the COVID-19 pandemic that many children will experience.
This webinar, featuring Dr. Bruce Perry, Senior Fellow at The ChildTrauma Academy, will review clinical work and research that can help us better understand developmental trauma and the cognitive, developmental, and relational problems that can arise as a result. An overview will be provided that suggests new directions for clinical practice, program development and policy. Dr. Perry will make suggestions for how educators, parents and families can structure their day, work towards more meaningful interactions, and be conscious of and work towards better self-regulation in order to positively impact a child’s experience and adults’ relationship with them.
