A Culture of Gentleness
February 25 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm$30
A workshop presented by Shelley Nessman and Sheldon Schwitek.
Gentle Teaching incorporates compassion as an alternative to the reactive practices there can be when working with people who may use their actions to communicate, or who may have complex needs.
This workshop will introduce the Central Purpose of Gentle Teaching and The Six Elements will be explored in detail.
Emphasis is placed on strategies that can lead to others feeling safer and more valued, how one’s trauma history can influence behaviour, planning proactively to reduce stress and challenges, and the value of supporting all involved.
