Building Resilience in Young Children and their Families: Body-Mind Approaches

Infants and young children learn about the world and express themselves through sensation and movement before they develop language. This conference focuses on the rich nonverbal dimensions of both children’s and parents’ experiences. Our presenters will explore how sensory processing affects development and how touch, handling, and movement facilitation enhance a child’s capacities to self-regulate and build relationships. We will examine the nuances of nonverbal communication between parents and their children and share interventions to improve parent-child relationships and build resilience. We will highlight the importance of an inter-cultural framework to understand these relationships and will consider how childhood experiences of both professionals and parents impact their work and relationships.

Featuring Plenary Speakers: Suzi Tortora, Daniel Schechter, and Gilbert M. Foley!

We are pleased to be able to offer social work and education CEUs/CTLEs for participation in this year’s conference! Beverages and lunch will be provided.
