Leading with Compassion in the Classroom

This is a past event.

Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Virtual Event

Are you interested in learning how to transform frustrating and challenging moments into opportunities for deeper understanding and connection? In this workshop, we will explore and practice essential techniques for working with classroom difficulties in ways that cultivate empathy, compassion, and clarity. We will draw from practices in mindfulness and Nonviolent Communication to help us promote students' belongingness and safety, and in turn, their learning. Although we will focus on a range of possible scenarios with students, the tools practices can be used in other contexts as well.
