504 - Selling Self-Regulation and Mental Health: Social/Emotional Learning Through Music and Movement
Alyssa Stone, Clinical Director, Dynamic Lynks
With the needs of therapists and children changing after this challenging year, we realize now more than ever how vital a social-emotional approach is to development, learning, and socializing. Attendees will learn techniques and strategies to effectively integrate social/emotional learning into the daily curriculum through FUNctional music and movement activities! In this presentation, attendees will explore music and movement activities to improve various emotional and social skills and sell participants on embracing them. Goal areas addressed through the activities will be discussed for each of the presented interventions. Attendees will have an opportunity to actively participate in several discussed activities and comment on ways to elaborate or adapt them. Exploring new social/emotional learning strategies is a fantastic way to think outside of the box and reach every individual that enters your space!
- Learn new activities for social/emotional learning demonstrated through interactive conversation with the presenter.
- Create original social and emotional development activities assessed by presenting an original SEL activity through a small group.
