Professional Development Workshops
We provide professional development workshops to educators, paraeducators, and school leaders to support SEL for all. Some of our topics include:
What is SEL and Why Is It Important?
Social-emotional learning (SEL) is a critical part of every child’s education and can be nurtured even when students are not in school. In this training, we will break down SEL into core areas of focus, review impact data, and provide participants with context for social-emotional skill building in the classroom and beyond.
Building Inclusive Communities To Support Social-Emotional Growth
Through honest discussion and reflection, this workshop helps school communities assess how their school currently addresses social-emotional learning and inclusion for all students. We will identify not only barriers, but also existing supports and new strategies for fostering inclusion throughout the learning community.
Empathy and Sympathy: What’s the Difference?
Empathy is recognized as one of the most important 21st century skills and is a driver for more meaningful and positive relationships. This workshop explores the difference between empathy and sympathy and the roles they play in nurturing connected, engaged learning communities. Educators will reflect on their own abilities to demonstrate empathy while gaining tools to explicitly teach empathy to their students through the lens of disability
