Please join us for a very interactive Roundtable on January 16th.
Researchers have found that no matter how intelligent or creative the students, or what type of learner they are, it is their inner world of feelings, thoughts and self-talk that ultimately determines how successfully they will learn. Emotion Focused Teaching is a road map for supporting students in a meaningful way - an approach that will help students reach their full potential socially, emotionally and intellectually, regardless of the challenges that they face.
In this talk, Dr. Rick Smith will discuss Emotion Focused Teaching, a science-based approach that helps teachers and parents support and enhance a student’s learning and address the difficult emotions of learning (i.e. frustration, boredom, anxiety, etc.) with a three-step method to build resilience, motivation and create a positive long-lasting effect in a student’s life. It is easy to learn and can be used by parents, care-givers and educators.
Participants of this talk will:
This is suitable for educators and parents of children and adolescents, aged 8-18. Teachers will find it most useful.
