SEL VI – Empathetic Communication, Strong Relationships

Empathy is a social and emotional competency that is often challenging to embody in a context of competing demands, misbehavior and misunderstanding. In this training, participants will learn basic mindfulness tools to deepen listening, enhance verbal and non-verbal communication, and build more positive, win-win relationships.   Participants will also learn to model empathetic communication in different segments of the Afternoon Meeting, and to apply positive teacher language in their program.
