Strategies for Addressing Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Health
An initiative within Boston Children’s Hospital, the Training and Access Project (TAP) offers freeTAP Online courses on social–emotional learning and behavioral health in schools. TAP Online is designed for all school staff, including teachers, specialists, school nurses, school administrators, guidance counselors, paraprofessionals, and support staff. Each self-paced course is composed of easy-to-follow videos that feature interviews with educators and clinicians discussing how to overcome challenges, tips on implementing effective strategies in the classroom, and guidelines for connecting with caregivers and healthcare providers. Also provided are resources and discussiontopics that can be used in the school setting.
Plus: To support families with managing anxiety in their children and adolescents, Boston Children’s Hospital Neighborhood Partnerships (BCHNP) has developed a compelling documentary—Managing Anxiety: Information for Parents and Caregivers. Available on YouTube, the film features children, adolescents, young adults, and parents sharing their stories, struggles, and successes in coping with anxiety. The video also offers strategies for getting children and adolescents support in school and in the community.
