Event description

Description

We know from research that the early years (0-6) are a critical time for the development of self-regulation, a time when responses to stress are “wired” creating patterns that can be hard to change later in life. What matters most in these early years is for children to feel safe and secure, and be able to count on their caregivers to calm them down when they are frightened, upset or distressed. When caregivers respond to children’s stress in a caring and calm way, children learn they can ‘get over’ the stress and return to feeling safe and secure again, and they trust that their feelings matter, that comfort is available and that it is worthwhile to work on managing difficult emotions.

This workshop focuses on tools that can be used to help children develop skills and strategies for self-regulation. This workshop is designed as an advanced level workshop that seeks to deepen participant understanding of Heart-Mind Well-Being (HMWB), and provide practical tools for fostering HMWB inpractice. Thus it was designed with the assumption that participants have prior knowledge and experience of the HMWB framework.

This workshop will be of interest to anyone caring for children, including parents, early childhood educators, family support workers, and other service providers.

Participants will:

  • Review and deepen their understanding of HMWB
  • Develop strategies for creating a safe and supportive environment for children
  • Explore the Secure and Calm a toolkit containing practical tools for promoting HMWB, learn about the science behind the tools and practice using them
  • Experience how mindfulness can be integrated into daily activities
  • Make personal connections to the work of promoting HMWB

Secure and Calm Toolkit

Toolkits will be available for purchase at the workshop.
