No matter what a child may be struggling with, when attempts at talking through a problem do not work, using alternative approaches for connecting will often prove more helpful. This webinar explores creative ways of engaging and communicating with children (ages 3-12) and their natural support systems. Viewers will learn about a variety of expressive arts (play, art, drama) and integrative body-based techniques (mindfulness, sensory, and whole-brain activities) that promote and build resilience in children.
