Program for Infant Toddler Care (PITC): Social-Emotional Growth and Socialization – Module 1
This first module begins with an overview of the basic concepts of early social-emotional growth and socialization and their application to the group care context. An emphasis is placed on the development of a nurturing relationship between the infant and caregiver. The overview addresses the importance of responsive caregiving, the individualization of care through an understanding of infant temperament, the critical role of family and culture in early identity development, and stages of emotional development. There will be a 30 minute break. Please bring a sack lunch or plan to purchase lunch at a nearby restaurant.
