Maternal Depression: Everyone Can Play a Role to Help Families Thrive
Jun 4 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Maternal depression affects thousands of families in the United States every year. When a mother is depressed, her overall health and well-being suffer, and she may struggle to provide the emotional support and resources her child needs to grow and thrive. Treatment is available, and resources exist. But too many mothers are never screened, never referred to treatment, and never directed to resources that can help their family achieve optimal health.

Mothers and babies don’t need to keep suffering the consequences of maternal depression. Physicians, public health providers, policy makers, families, and community advocates can take action and drive change to improve children’s health.

During this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • The prevalence of maternal depression, and its effect on early childhood outcomes and health disparities

  • The latest recommendations for maternal depression screening from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force

  • Strategies for improving access to screenings and interventions

  • Actions you can take at the community, state, and federal level to help more mothers and families get the support they deserve

    Skip, Turn, & Hop into Teaching ECE Math and Language Arts Through Movement, by Connie Bergstein Dow, MFA
    Jun 12 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

    As a longtime dance educator, Connie Dow, the presenter of this webinar, believes that dance can and should be accessible to young children, so teachers can give them the gift of movement and at the same time integrate learning across subject areas. Connie will demonstrate a wealth of ideas for presenting age-appropriate kinesthetic learning opportunities to young children, with an emphasis on math and language arts concepts.

    During this webinar, participants will:

  • Learn about the many benefits of movement in the early childhood setting

  • Address math and language arts concepts through the use of developmentally-appropriate creative and playful movement activities

  • Use movement concepts to help children gain body and spatial awareness, both for the child’s social-emotional development and as a classroom management tool

  • Understand and become more comfortable with integrating movement into your own early childhood environment
