Stress is a fact of life, no matter your age. Some stress is good for us – it keeps us attentive, sharp, productive, learning. But Toxic Stress affects brain development and learning in young children, and can have long-lasting effects. This session will help participants define stress responses and understand the difference between “tolerable” and “toxic” stress. We’ll look at the long term effects of Toxic Stress and investigate practices for mitigating those effects and promoting resilience in young children.
Cost $15 with 2 credit hours.
