It is a familiar situation - the new child in your care is crying and clinging to mom's leg begging her not to leave. The child and parent are both clearly stressed and upset, and you feel anxiety too. What should you do? This course provides you with a foundation of the science behind separation anxiety (it's actually a part of typical development!) In addition, you will learn how to best help parents and children cope with separation anxiety.

Not all courses are approved for early care and education in every state. Please check State and CEU Approvals page for details.
