This presentation will use video resources as well as group interaction to help afterschool staff bring ideas of how to make their participants feel more emotionally safe in their programs. Staff will be given information regarding developmentally appropriate social emotional growth and be able to navigate ways to support what they are developing in an age appropriate way. There will be activities where staff work together in small groups to come up with issues regarding emotional safety in their programs and also time for them to discuss ways to troubleshoot these issues. Ideas and activities will emphasize the fact that emotional safety is an important component in afterschool programming, and it is possible to make emotional safety a priority in the way we do our normal day to day.
