Netlink: Children Can Hear

Date:   Thursday, March 14, 2019
Time:   8:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.
Trainer:   Penny Jordan MA
Location:   Child Welfare Partnership - Netlink

This training incorporates recent studies related to how specific language can provide lasting motivation for children. Mindful speech helps foster empathy and flexibility in children. With just a few changes in how we talk with children in everyday tasks, we foster the development of long term skills in motivation, empathy and flexibility in our children. We'll learn the neuroscience of using language to help children, see examples of using language and then practice the words needed to develop these skills. You'll create, and take home, your own personalized list of phrases and words that fit your everyday life from lists provided and practiced.
