Parent Evening: The emotional roots of aggression and anxiety: supporting change and building resilient kids

Parents of St. Johns School. Please see your school board or school admin for more information.

The emotional roots of aggression and anxiety: supporting change and building resilient kids

The research is clear: young children learn and develop best through play. In a world that has replaced play with entertainment, we are seeing the dire side effects of this cultural shift as aggression and anxiety in children is at an all time high. This conversation has never been more important as we look to how we can support children’s emotional health and learning. We’ll unpack the science behind why play is the perfect medium for children to learn about and digest their world. We will explore how play lowers anxiety and aggression, builds resilience, fosters social and emotional health as well as increasing natural curiosity and engagement with learning. You will learn key strategies for how to create a nourishing play-based environment as well as practical applications you can use to support children in deepening their learning. Discover fluid, nonlinear and indirect ways to harness the power of how young children learn and grow best.

Join Hannah for a powerful workshop that will help you gain insight into the psychology of play and how it works to support children to learn and discover their best selves.
