During this stressful time of quarantine, what tools can we, as practitioners, give parents to help their children express the array of diverse feelings they have and still find a place of calm and regulation? How do you hold a child’s attention through video conferencing? Mindfulness activities are helpful, but how do you get children to slow down, breath and focus when they have been confined indoors and are quite literally “bouncing off the walls”?

Please join us for this lunchbreak workshop where Dr. Suzi Tortora will share specific clinical tips and activities for children ages birth to five, using movement, dance and story to help practitioners and parents engage with their children, release stress, enhance self-expression and be able to implement mindful practices that support both caregivers and their children.

This workshop is being provided to our community at no cost by New York Zero-to-Three Network and Dr. Suzi Tortora, recognizing the challenges we are all facing during this time and the importance of coming together as a community.

CE hours are also being offered for an $18 fee through Dancing Dialogues. Participants must first register with New York Zero-to-Three Network here and then register directly with Dancing Dialogues to receive CE credits.
