In this presentation, April will speak about Highly Sensitive Children (HSC): how to identify them; how to capitalize on the special qualities that HSC possess such as keen senses, high empathy and intuition; how these qualities are actually needed for resilience; and the areas in which these qualities can be encouraged and valued within group processes (based on the research of Elaine Eron and Dr. Kimberly Schonert-Reichl). She will also give practical ideas and solutions for programming when working with HSC in early childhood, child care and school-age settings.
