We now know that there is nothing more stressful than emotional wounding, yet evidence strongly indicates that our children’s world is becoming a more wounding place. We also know that the emotional health and well-being of our children depends upon us being able to keep them safe, yet how are we to do this when our ability to control the situations and circumstances in their lives is waning? Although our educational systems have never tried harder to reduce discrimination and bullying as well as teach empathy, these efforts are proving futile as they do not address the underlying roots of the problems. Based on new insights in developmental science, Dr. Neufeld will reveal surprising solutions to this distressing problem.
You may want a pen, pencil, or highlighter or all of the above to make notes on the handout. Also bring whatever else you need to be comfortable in your space.
The handout, in the resources below, includes session IV. We will be covering sessions 1 - 3 during this pro-d day. If people are interested, I can offer session 4 at another after-school time.
I am currently the principal of a K-7 school and an 8-12 school in a rural community. My work in education has also included being a classroom teacher, resource teacher, outdoor ed teacher, librarian, and counsellor. I have been a facilitator with the Neufeld Institute for 10+ years.
