Do crying babies stress you out? Guess what, the babies are stressed too! Helping babies learn to soothe leads to improved pro-social behaviors as they grow. Caregivers can use soothing techniques to help build the foundation for positive social-emotional skills. This webinar will help caregivers understand how experiences and the environment impact infant brain development and how to use “serve and return” to meet infant’s needs for soothing.
1. Following the lesson, learners will accurately describe an example of using serve and return to sooth a baby.
2. Given a list, learners will identify the best soothing technique to meet a baby's needs in a scenario.
