  1. Helping Caregivers Cope - A Workshop on Stress

    This virtual version of Save the Children'sCaregivers Journey of Hope (JOH) provides the opportunity for individuals that take care of others process stress and develop positive coping strategies. 

    Understanding the basics of stress management in an emergency recovery environment such as COVID-19.

    Every day, child care teachers do so much to nurture and support young children.  Recognizing and handling our own stress in a positive way is key to a child’s social emotional well-being.  Whether it is a disaster or every day stress, this two day training walks child care professionals through steps they can take to promote emotional safety for the children in their care, including strategies that encourage teachers to remember to take care of themselves.
