The challenges and trauma of the ongoing pandemic have had a huge impact on students and teachers, and the associated social and academic challenges will be seen and felt for many years to come. Meeting the social-emotional needs of students is more important than ever—and Dr. Kathy Perez can help educators make social-emotional learning (SEL) a priority in their schools and foster resilience in themselves and others.
Author of The Social-Emotional Learning Toolbox, Dr. Perez shares her wisdom in this strategy-based, interactive edWebinar. Viewers learn how to:
- Understand the impact of trauma on the brain and behavior
- Reach relationship-resistant students to increase cooperation
- Create a culture of compassion that embraces marginalized students
- Implement practical, trauma-informed interventions to help students learn
- Use techniques to improve students’ attitudes and beliefs about self, others, and school
- Empower students to build confidence, cooperation, curiosity, and communication skills
- Lay the groundwork for a lifetime of resilience
This recorded edWebinar is a must-watch for K-12 classroom teachers, school counselors, and school and district administrators.
