A South Carolina Department of Education sponsored course for their educators, school-based mental health professionals and educational leaders.
Successful social-emotional learning involves supporting students and educational staff using integrated and differentiated approaches. In these comprehensive trainings participants will learn critical classroom strategies based in neuroscience that support the development of self-regulation skills. Participants will learn to understand the dynamics behind difficult student-teacher relationships, and how to shift these challenging interactions. Participants will learn how to improve the school and classroom culture and increase students’ feelings of safety and belonging. Participants will be able to establish daily routines and rituals that intentionally teach “top-down skills” while also creating “bottom-up co-regulatory experiences.” Come discover the many facets of supporting trauma-informed, inclusive, social-emotional practices, leading to sustainable growth.
This is the foundational course in a year-long series of trainings that also includes intermediate and advanced level programming.
