Adult Self Care and the Window of Presence


Porter Eichenlaub, our SEL Program Manager, joins us today to talk about adult self care and the window of presence.

Making sure that we take care of ourselves is a foundation of serving our youth well and in modeling and teaching critical social and emotional learning (SEL) skills. In this video, we will explore the physiological basis of self-care, and expand our foundational strategies for building our capacity to be present in the face of challenge and overwhelm.
