The Power of Relationship and Play

with Hannah Beach

The Power of Relationship and Play

Join Hannah for a warm and conversational workshop exploring the practical strategies we can use to support our children t thrive. We will delve into how play can reduce aggression, lower anxiety and build resilience. And we’ll explore the emotion behind aggression so that we can jump off the exhausting hamster wheel of trying to fix behaviours over and over again – and instead look at how we can work towards lasting change. This workshop is geared towards children in Grades K – 6.
