Event description

Description

Teachers, School Administrators, and Community Leaders are invited to a full-day workshop with Dr. Deborah MacNamara, developmentalist and author of the best selling book Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers (Or Anyone Who Acts Like One).


Relationship is fundamental to who we are and what we do, yet it is one of the most overlooked aspects of the learning equation. Societal changes and current culture does not facilitate strong adult to student relationships making connecting to teachers much less automatic. A relational culture matters in schools but how do we do this? What are the essential ingredients that must go with this endeavour and how do we bring people along in creating positive school culture? This presentation will address the benefit of strong teacher/child relationships, the role of immaturity and stuckness on learning, and attachment rituals to foster a relational culture.
