National CASA Webinar: Understanding Relationships and their Importance to Early Childhood Development
September 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Within this presentation, we will discuss how children develop within the context of their primary relationships and the way in which our formative relationships contribute to the development of resiliency and vulnerability. By enriching a child’s relational opportunities, we can shift the trajectory of a their development toward a life of physical and mental health. Together, we will consider the life-long impact of early life exposure to toxic stress and trauma, gain a deeper understanding of the immense protective value of attuned, supportive relationships, and identify practical ways to apply cutting-edge research from the fields of psychology and neuroscience to your daily work with young children and their families.
Presented by Dr. Mike Sherman of Zero to Three
