Social-Emotional Development, Challenging Behaviors, and Building Self-Regulation

​LACOE, Head Start Division

Dr. Sandra Williams, Mental Health Consultant
Dr. Tony Wu, Mental Health Consultant

We will discuss TK students’ social-emotional development and critical milestones, and how these relate to children’s ability to regulate themselves and learn in school. We will also explore teachers’ awareness of their own emotional and behavioral states and how these factors affect teaching and learning. Participants will gain an understanding of the needs of children with challenging behaviors through a developmental framework and learn strategies that support co-regulation and foster children’s self-regulation.
