Emotionally Responsive Practice
Emotionally Responsive Practice (ERP) at Bank Street offers ongoing professional development, teacher support, coaching, and other on-site services to early childhood and elementary school programs. Our services build on the well-documented connection between emotional well-being, learning, and positive peer relationships. We help educators and administrators develop emotionally responsive school routines, curricula, and adult-child interactions that support all children, including those with a traumatic history.
ERP is built on a deep understanding of child development, research on the effect of social and emotional experience on the developing brain, and the proven positive effects of working partnerships between educators and school-based clinicians.
