Social-Emotional Wellness for Children During COVID-19
In addition to keeping children physically safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is also important to pay close attention to their social and emotional health and wellbeing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently reports that while children appear to be at lower risk for contracting COVID-19, they are far more vulnerable to the emotional impact of traumatic events and adverse experiences. This webinar is designed to provide information on supporting and protecting children’s social and emotional well-being as this public health crisis unfolds. Presented by Tova Eggerstedt, MS, Ed.S., Training Specialist, Center for Disabilities. Instructor, Department of Pediatrics and Adjunct Graduate Faculty, Curriculum & Instruction at University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine.
