December Webinar – Reading & Reaching Your Students

Reading & Reaching Your Students

Why is it that with some students everything seems to “click” but other students are such a struggle to understand or reach? They are physically present, but their souls seem to be elsewhere. As an educator or educational therapist, we have goals we need to reach with our students but our relationship with those who struggle can make the all the difference. In this webinar we will explore the application of the therapeutic alliance from the field of counseling as it relates to our work with students.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a greater understanding of the relational dynamics that affect a student’s availability for learning.
  • Learn the basics of active listening skills that counselors use to enable a student to feel heard.
