Creating Healing-Centered Summer Programs

This webinar provides information to prepare summer staff to understand the overwhelming stress or trauma that youth may bring into a summer program. It explores three ways to maximize healing: (1) relationships, as trust is an antidote to stress and can be built through brief interactions; (2) physical activity that is patterned and repetitive like walking, running, or playing catch; and (3) learning how to manage stress through controlled or moderate stress experiences. This resource supports the COVID-19 response. This resource supports resiliency.
