The Doctor of Happiness is IN…..Live from San Diego, It’s Dr. Laurie Santos and Sesame Workshop on Children’s Emotional Well-Being
When we think of mental health and emotional well-being, we don’t always have the youngest children in mind. But when it comes to mental health, you can’t start early enough. With a little help from Elmo, Dr. Laurie Santos and Sesame Workshop’s Kay Wilson Stallings and Stephen Youngwood will discuss starting early to lay the foundation for lifelong emotional well-being—and how media and technology can help.
