Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a virus that has spread around the world. This can be a scary time with new information coming out every day.
Parents and caregivers want their children to be happy, healthy, and productive. A focus on health and safety is important for all children as they grow up. Healthy children start to learn skills when they are born. These skills will help them in school and when they are adults.
Teachers can’t do it all! But, sometimes common problems in the classroom and hallways usually extend beyond “bad behavior” and could be indicators of certain health issues. Resolving health issues in school can have a positive impact on attendance and focus during the school day.
Health staff play a pivotal role in a growing child’s life. Doctors, nurses, health educators, and medical support staff all communicate important information to children and families related to physical and mental health and well-being.
Policies and laws help shape school health in practice. As research continues to show how health affects education and vice versa, programs to promote school health are growing. Anyone can be an advocate - students, families, educators, and community members.
The Healthy and Ready to Learn Resource and Training Center provides free trainings to equip all adults in the lives of children with the knowledge and skills to promote strong attendance, community health, and training sensitivity.
For 30 years Children's Health Fund has provided high quality clinical services to children in some of the most underserved communities in the country. The Healthy and Ready to Learn initiative is the next step.
Healthy and Ready to Learn Resource and Training Center is virtual! As new COVID-19
information is becoming available by the day, HRL wants to make sure we can keep
supporting NYC families and educators. This week, we'll focus our deep-dive on
Care for the Caregiver.
By the end of this week, participants will be able to:
In these unprecedented times where many of us are both taking care of others,
either in our work or at home or both, while also having to cope with all of the new
stress that comes with fighting COVID-19. It is important now more than ever to ensure
that we're practicing kindness and compassion not just with others but with ourselves!
This week we will be doing a deep-dive into the ways that we can care for ourselves as a
way of practicing trauma-sensitivity and self-awareness.
In partnership with our Counseling in Schools, we will use this week to talk about how to care
for the caregiver, and more about the ways that we can care for ourselves as a way of
practicing trauma-sensitivity and self-awareness.
This session in our weekly virtual Community Conversation focuses on Care for the Caregiver,
presented in partnership with Counseling in Schools. We will discuss the importance of providing
care to ourselves during this time and how to implement several self-care practices.
