This audio show is part of a special series to offer ways to close each of the gaps in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs as we teach and care for children during the pandemic.
In Episode 23: Hacks for Solving Safety Gaps, I talk about shifting events are opening safety gaps for many families and children, including personal, financial, and emotional insecurities.
This episode offers a few hacks, in the sense of scrappy efficient shortcuts, for governments, schools, and families who are working to close safety gaps.
Sometimes becoming resourceful in the face of adversity creates more strength and safety than before the adversity hit.
What you will discover:
* Why scoring high on the "Do You Know" scale correlates with psychological well-being
* How to tell stories to children and adolescents in ways that improve their resiliency and sense of identity
* It could be time for schools to organize Family Circles
