SENGinar - Embodying Asynchrony: “Observ”-ation over “Fix”-ation
Time & Location
About The Event
Children’s body movements share a parallel process to their emotional, psychological, and cognitive states. This presentation will provide insight into their body patterns, language, translations, and common parenting reactions. Participants will walk away with both heightened observation skills and strategies they can use to help children at home and school. By moving away from trying to “fix” everything, you will find the ease that comes from predictability.
