Chaos to Calm: Art-Based Activities - Trauma-Informed Classroom

Category: Early Childhood Education (Regional and On-site)
Posted on 10/28/2020
Supporting social-emotional development helps children who are overwhelmed by big emotions regain their composure and improve their readiness to learn. Participants will learn sensory-based strategies to provide a creative outlet for students to increase self-expression, communication, and behavioral regulation at home and within the classroom. Research shows that art based activities within a caregiver-child interaction can rewire neural circuits and strengthen synapses in the brain. The heart of trauma-informed care is connection, and through expressive arts we can create a sense of safety and belonging within our schools and classrooms that builds resiliency for all children.

No art experience necessary.
