Member Price: $13 / Non-Member: $25
Join COAEYC and Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant Corinna Crandall LMFT, IMH-E as we approach challenging behaviors with curiosity. In this interactive workshop we will attempt to put challenging behaviors into different contexts and learn tools and proactive strategies to use with individual children and with the entire class. The workshop also provides space to reflect on what you bring into the classroom and to tap into your strengths during challenging times. This virtual workshop includes small group discussions, so be prepared to be present and visible; participation makes this a richer experience for all.
You must attend both sessions to get a certificate for this course. You will earn 4 clock hours upon completion.
