When children are nurtured and taught in emotionally safe environments, they have a greater capacity to learn and grow into their full potential, courage to face challenges, a natural curiosity and the opportunity to cultivate resilience.

Current research states that for children to connect in healthy ways and express their authentic confident selves they need to feel emotionally safe. This workshop covers the specific ingredients you need to cultivate emotional safety. You will walk away with the foundations of the skills you need to create emotional safety and tools you can immediately use in your classroom.

We will cover

  1. What emotional safety is, why it is important and how to create it in your classroom.
  2. The 5 magic ingredients to create emotional safety.
  3. Dysregulation and regulation of the nervous system and how it effects children and their capacity to learn and flourish.
  4. Secure and insecure attachment. What it is and why it is important.
  5. Tools that teachers can use in their classroom

Emotional intelligence skills are predicted to become the most sought-after skills in the future for the children of today, in relation to success and employability.

With the school curriculum so pressured we are not able to introduce an entirely new subject. The only way we are going to be able to teach and facilitate these skills in and for children is to incorporate them, little by little into many moments and classes throughout the day. Fortunately, once you can identify and grow the skills in yourself it becomes easy to incorporate them into the teaching day.

To create long lasting change, we need to support connection consistently in our daily actions, taking small steps and making simple changes every day that ultimately lead to a shift in the culture and environment in a school.

This training focuses on using connection to invite co-operation and change. By taking a deeper look at what bullying is, what is going on under the surface we will dive deeply into understanding the root causes contributing to the bullying behaviour. The environment and culture around bulling and how schools and educators can be proactive about creating a culture of respectful, honouring relationships.

Connection is the solution.

  • Creating nurturing environments of love and support
