Program Overview
This course will present an interdisciplinary approach to managing somatization in our schools. Given the attention of emotional health in children leading to academic success and the importance of attending to the whole child, this program has been developed to increase K-6 students’ abilities to cope with school stress in healthy and effective ways. The participant will leave with a better understanding of the frequent flyer, and tools to utilize in their health suites to assist the students they serve.
