As we learn to teach students how to increase their own self-awareness, mindfullness and capacity to self-regulate, everyone wins! Whether you are looking for proactive or responsive school wide and classroom tools or looking for novel ways to infuse restorative and trauma-informed practices into your day, this course will provide powerful support.
