MATERIALS PROVIDED: Participants will read the chapters identified of the book “RECLAIMING OUR STUDENTS”. The chapters will be provided electronically.
AUTHORS: Hannah Beach, a celebrated educator and specialist in the field of emotional health, and Tamara Neufeld Strijack, clinical counsellor and academic dean of the acclaimed Neufeld Institute, provide a thoughtful guide to restoring the student-teacher relationship and creating the conditions for change.
DESCRIPTION: This book is going to lead you to understand how change happens, and where it comes from. You’re not going to have to memorize anything. There are no “steps” or “prescriptive strategies.” This book is not about helping you to become a superhero. It’s not about being extraordinary or the “perfect” teacher. It’s not about pushing yourself at all; in fact, it’s rather the opposite. It’s about going back to the essence of how human beings work and looking to the roots of human need—connection and attachment. You are going to learn about the types of connections that children need, and how to build these connections so that your students can become attached to you, as their leader in the classroom.
The relational developmental approach in this book is rooted in and inspired by the theoretical model developed by Dr. Gordon Neufeld, founder of the Neufeld Institute.
TOPICS INCLUDED: Understanding the reason’s behind why a student is anxious, resistant and/or aggressive. Suggestions for how to help students with these difficulties will be discussed.
QUESTIONS: Participants will send their questions to the facilitator.
GROUP ONLINE SESSIONS: Participants will meet online using Adobe Connect to integrate the material they have read, as well as to have their questions and concerns answered by the Facilitator.
FACILITATOR: Sessions will be facilitated by Eva de Gosztonyi, Martine Demers and Catherine Korah. Supported by Centre of Excellence for Behaviour Management
FORMAT: This course will use Adobe Connect, an interface that requires no special applications.
