Stress is a fact of life, no matter your age. Some stress is good for us- it keeps us attentive, sharp, productive, and  learning. But Toxic Stress affects brain development and learning in young children and can have long- lasting effects. This session will help participants define stress responses and understand the difference between “tolerable” and “toxic” stress. We’ll look at the long term effects of Toxic Stress and investigate practices for mitigating
those effects and promoting resilience in young children.  Instructor:  Shaquana Bynum, DEPC Healthy Social Behavior Specialist  To register, contact sbynum@depc.org
