Emotionally Responsive Schools Conference

Bank Street’s 9th Annual Emotionally Responsive Schools Conference is a day of collaboration and study of Emotionally Responsive Practice (ERP) in early childhood, elementary, and middle school settings. This annual conference supports teachers, social workers, and administrators to develop a deep understanding of child development, social and emotional foundations for learning and well-being, parent engagement, and mastery of supportive techniques for building safe and nurturing school communities.

Emotionally Responsive Practice is consistent with SAMHSA’s definition of trauma-informed care.
