Stress and the Brain: Raising Resilient Kids
Erin Walsh, Spark & Stitch Institute
It is no surprise that kids and adults alike experienced accelerating levels of stress in the past two years. Whether it is uncertainty, upset routines, or lack of connection, the list of stressors has been long and varied. As we emerge from COVID and enter a more “normal” school year, this doesn’t mean that stress goes away. We know that too much stress impacts health and shapes the brain’s developing architecture. We also know that learning how to handle appropriate stress is a healthy and normal part of development. Striking the right balance between protection and preparation for life isn’t easy. This workshop delivers warmth, brain science and humor to explore what stress looks like in kids and ways to respond that build resilience and strengthen connection.
