Praise for Our Work

“SPT One Foot in Education helped me reach out to educators in a deeper, more meaningful way. Knowing this knowledge as a mental health professional is different from knowing it as an educator and through this training, I feel confident to translate the brain science and regulation information into applicable content for school staff. I have new tools and handouts to share, but more importantly, I have a deeper, embodied felt-sense of this knowledge, so that I can help educators feel it too.”
