Come learn about the social emotional practices used in the Early Childhood program of Santa Fe School for the Arts & Sciences.
The two-session workshop, facilitated by Suzanne Maheshi Shakespeare-Jones and Aurora Hvidsten, will give parents a chance to learn the compassionate communication techniques and practices developed at our school over our 18-year history.
Saturday, April 7, 9:30-noon
During the 1st session, we’ll learn about child development theories that support the understanding of limits, ways to speak to your children so that they will listen, and ways to support children in speaking with compassion in order to foster deep listening skills.
Saturday, April 21, 9:30-noon
During the 2nd session, we will have time to reflect on what was learned during the first session and share experiences about using the new practices. We will dive deeper into child development theories as we learn to use stories and stuffed animals to help children develop social emotional confidence, resilience, and healthy friendships.
Parents are encouraged to attend both workshops as a series. However, the sessions are designed to be stand-alone workshops.
We would like to encourage folks to sign up for both sessions and either sign up with a friend or significant other.
