Success depends on working with students to develop and strengthen their social-emotional skills so they’re able to form compassionate, respectful relationships and build trust. We equip educators with direct, actionable training so they have an opportunity to cultivate mental wellness in their classrooms and school communities, and are prepared if the time comes to change the course for someone in crisis.
“The presentation was important for many of the professionals and paraprofessionals to hear. I can count on one hand the number of presentations that have held the attention of an auditorium full of school employees. This was one such presentation. It created thought provoking informal conversations later in the day. That is the sign of an effective speaker.”
