Harnessing Social and Emotional Learning to Support the Well-Being of ESPs During the COVID-19 Crisis
August 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It takes a whole village to support a whole child, and the strain on our school communities, including our education support professionals (ESPs), is unprecedented. In this webinar, Dr. Chris Cipriano, Assistant Professor and Director of Research at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, will provide social and emotional learning (SEL) strategies to support ESPs within the school ecosystem to navigate the challenging emotions of these rapidly evolving times. Participants will have the opportunity to explore their complex feelings surrounding the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 and learn strategies for harnessing emotions to cope in healthy and productive ways. Resources for building resilience will be provided and tips for practicing self-care will be tailored to support the unique needs identified by participants.
