It has been said, “whoever our students may be, whatever subject we teach, ultimately we teach who we are.” Enjoy learning EduCare’s 8 Skills for Heartset® Education and develop a personal "growth heartset”. A growth heartset becomes a way of being… a way of teaching that sparks our students’ own SEL. This highly interactive session focuses on creating communities of caring from the “inside out” with connection, empathy, and love.
Based on EduCare’s field-tested ACE Program that has reached nearly 50,000 students in the U.S. and internationally, participants learn strategies of self-awareness (mindfulness), emotional self-management (or self-care), relationship building, and empathic listening and ways for developing students to:
- Honor and respect themselves and others
- Express themselves with authenticity and integrity
- Take responsibility for their lives and make wise choices
- Resolve conflict through tolerance, understanding, and compassion
- Empower themselves as creative, confident, and heart-centered leaders
