In a society that says ‘put yourself last’, self-love and self-acceptance are almost revolutionary.Brene Brown
As we find ourselves in a strange new time we must move forward with action to emerge as strong early childhood educators, parents and advocates. While this new time may be filled with anxiety and trauma we must remember to care for ourselves first so we can care for children and families.
Award-winning author Holly Elissa Bruno will guide us through a journey of self-care, self-reflection, and discovery. Grounded in theory and experience on trauma and emotionally intelligent leadership, Holly Elissa shares information and strategies for self-help, designed to support us all as we continue to serve children and families. Even during this time of increased stress and anxiety we can find strength and hope in ourselves and our community.
When the world flips upside down, children need stable, unflappable adults to reassure them all is well. But who reassures us adults? Traumatic times can bring out the best in us. Let’s together identify HOPEFUL everyday practices to serve as our lighthouse during this pandemic storm.
