“Transform yourself to transform the world” - Grace Lee Boggs
As educators, we know that developing social-emotional competencies is beneficial for our students. However, did you know that it is equally supportive for us? Actually, leading SEL researchers and organizations all advise that before incorporating SEL in the classroom, educators, leaders and other adults in the lives of youth would benefit from deepening their own SEL practices and understanding.

In this experiential workshop, we will engage in exploratory and reflective practices that will help us to deepen our own social-emotional competencies. Expect to be having conversations, writing, and actively participating as you engage in practices and routines that will help you to become more self-aware and to take action in supporting your own resilience and self-regulation. While most of our time together will be focused on the self, we will also touch on some practices that strengthen relationships. Many of our learning experiences can be used or modified to fit the classroom as well.

Some of the areas of exploration will be:
  • Understanding how our personal values and strengths influence our purpose
  • Recognizing our patterns of emotions and using that information to inform our choices
  • Practicing mindfulness techniques that support self-awareness and resilience
  • Identifying stressors and regulation strategies to prevent stress and burnout
  • Exploring assertive and compassionate ways to communicate our needs and understand those of others
Materials Needed:
All participants are asked to bring a notebook or journal and something to write with. They will be invited to write and reflect in as they engage in practices in between workshop sessions.
Who should take this workshop?
This workshop is offered for anyone in education who would like to become more socially-emotionally competent - for themselves and for the youth in their lives. Teachers, leaders, teaching assistants, consultants, bus drivers, office staff, parents - all are welcome.
