We are so excited to be joining our friends at himama for this important and timely webinar. Dr. Housman will discuss how we can start to teach children to embrace differences and build empathy from the earliest years. We will also explore the important role you as one of the key adults in their world, and your own emotionality, have in helping to model for and guide children in their understanding. Dr. Housman will be joined after the presentation by Housman Institute's Manager of Curriculum and Coaching for a conversation on how training impacts educators' ability to help lay the foundation of empathy and understanding not only for the children in their care but also for themselves.
At Housman Institute, we believe our role is to nurture the social, emotional, and cognitive well-being of all students and educators without bias. It is critical that every child feel recognized and validated from their earliest days—to understand that their voice matters, regardless of background or experience and is being heard. We listen to, respect and support the needs of our educators as we recognize their critical role in a child's emotional growth and development. Together we need to begin the important work to help all our children and educators, as we move toward a more equitable environment for early learning, setting the stage for the building blocks of empathy and conflict resolution, and a more equitable future for us all.
