The Power of Empathy: Reduce Stress and Build Better Adult/Child Relationships
Stress is alarmingly pervasive in daily life. We all need tools to deal with tension in healthy and productive ways. In this webinar with Koa Goode, a Social Worker and Case Manager at Greater Lawrence Community Action Council, we’ll explore the lasting benefits of learning to walk a while in someone else’s shoes, of exercising compassion in our interactions with others. This is especially important with family members, including our children. It’s easy to forget that kids have a wide range of feelings and stressors, just like adults. Understanding developmental milestones from infants to teens helps us as parents, teachers, and caregivers to create nurturing relationships with children.
