Coping with Changes: Social-Emotional Learning Through Play

Lego Foundation via FutureLearn

Overview

Discover mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) and SEL strategies

COVID-19 means children around the world must adjust to school closure, social distancing, school reopening (but looking different), and the probability of more school closures in future.

These changes will impact children’s academic outcomes as well as challenge their mental health and socio-emotional wellbeing, which forms the basis of their ability to learn.

On this course, you’ll explore the practical and emotional challenges facing children and discover learning through play and stress management strategies that can help.

You’ll also consider the potential long term effects of crises on a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development.

This course is primarily designed for primary caregivers and teachers of young people.

The course will also be of interest to culture and social workers, artists, and humanitarian workers.
