Course description

For the last few decades, research and clinical practice have demonstrated and continue to provide evidence to advocate the importance of social and emotional development.  

In this webinar, we will focus on understanding the impact of peer relationships, both negative and positive, on children's sense of well-being and belonging. We will provide strategies to develop positive and caring attitudes, partnering of children for friendship and respect, and the coaching of interaction skills.
