Professional Development

Throughout the year, Chicago Children’s Theatre offers a series of professional development opportunities to educators and arts partners across the city. Through these initiatives we hope to share helpful techniques, curriculum ideas, and materials with teachers and institutional partners in Chicago and beyond.

Upcoming Opportunities

Webinar Series: Trauma Informed Arts Education for a Trauma Informed Illinois

On three consecutive Wednesday afternoons in December of 2020, Chicago Children’s Theatre and the Lurie Children’s Center for Childhood Resilience invited TYA artists, early childhood educators and youth mental health experts to join a series of live webinars to discuss, share and learn how to identify children impacted by trauma, and how to use theater and other art forms to address their emotional and learning needs while fostering resilience.
