Social, Emotional & Cognitive Learning Workshops

Social, emotional, & cognitive learning is a powerful proactive initiative linked to the reduction of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse while increasing attendance, test scores, and prosocial behaviour such as kindness, empathy, and personal awareness.

  • Review the latest research-based methods for developing social, emotional and cognitive learning in the classroom.
  • Practice specific social, emotional and cognitive learning through hands-on, interactive activities.

The ability to be aware of and accept our feelings, practice and display an optimistic approach to life, and overcome disappointments and frustrations with positivity.

 

How do we overcome obstacles, celebrate mistakes, and learn from failure? Adaptability allows us to navigate, adjust & pivot to unexpected situations in an ever-changing world.

 

Mastering diverse modes of communication, collaboration and public speaking to understand how a leader is a “difference-maker” & how we can all be forces of positive change in our community.

 

Curiosity, creativity & critical thinking; leading to the generation of fresh and original ideas.

 

Building strength of character, identity, empathy, integrity, grit, work ethic, and contribution.

 

A resilient mindset allows you to turn lemons into lemonade. Resiliency allows us to overcome obstacles, learn from mistakes, and bounce back with renewed strength.
