The Coconino Coaltion for Children & Youth wants to remind everyone that we have a variety of free webinar training programs on our website to help parents and families during the upcoming back to school season.

Our growing library of on-demand webinars is designed to help the public gain the tools they need to provide trauma-informed care, tips to help strengthen family protective factors, examine the effects of historical trauma and adverse childhood experiences, address issues such as bullying and the support to adults and youth through the use of mindfulness practices.

The webinars include:

  • Adult Emotions Healing and addressing your needs — Part One

These videos are meant to help support our community.  Having the tools to take care of ourselves and respond to children, is a great resource.

In this webinar, we first we learn to understand our emotions and then we can understand and respond to the big emotional responses of children.

  • Understanding and respond to children’s big emotions — Part two

In this 30-minue webinar, we give you tips and tools on how to teach your child about their emotions and handling them in a way that is helpful, not hurtful.

We created this hour-long webinar due to the importance mindfulness holds for both professionals and clients. There is much healing to be had, mindful choices to be made, and support to our community.
