We’re excited to be a part of the upcoming virtual 2021 National Social and Emotional Learning Conference on May 17-19. The 2021 National SEL Conference brings together some of the top SEL thought-leaders and practitioners in the nation to learn best practices and strategies for effective SEL implementation.
Shannon Wanless, Director of the Office of Child Development and Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh and Jennifer Miller of CPCK will be conducting a workshop entitled “Using a New Framework for Bringing Together Social and Emotional Learning and Parenting.” In it, we’ll be utilizing the Transformative Social and Emotional Learning framework as articulated by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning to explore family challenges in ways that build on strengths, elevate culture, identity, belonging and agency and allow for interactive development between parents/caregivers and their children.
We are also looking forward to the keynote address by friend and equity leader Dena Simmons, founder of LiberatED on “Self-Care, Healing and Equity-responsive Practices When the World Feels Heavy” among many other experts and topics. I hope you’ll consider joining us! Learn more here!
