Team Up! Unlocking Potential: Building Resilience in Children with Tina Payne Bryson

Dr. Tina Payne Bryson provided Punahou families with an enlightening presentation with practical insights rooted in cutting-edge brain science, including topics such as how to foster emotional regulation, resilience, personal insight and empathy. Bryson explains that children who form secure attachments with their caregivers lead happier and more fulfilling leaves. These bonds are formed when parents or caregivers respond to the needs of their children by providing the Four S’s: Safe, Seen, Soothed and Secure.

Watch the recording below to learn strategies on implementing these Four S’s in your child’s daily life, including the slides from the presentation and handouts provided to attendees.
