It’s the experience of a relationship that's the most influential aspect of helping others grow and thrive.
Yet that’s the element so often neglected.
This course is for you if you’re looking for something beyond the all-to-common rigid and behavioral approaches and want to strengthen your ability to build restorative connections with the young people you care about.
When you focus on the experience of the relationship, you tap into the most influential aspect of helping others grow and thrive.
This course will guide you through how to connect with and support students and young people – and what you'll gain is relevant in any setting where you want to create conditions for learning, growth, and restoration.
So, whether your time is invested in the home, classroom, out-of-school time, or in a therapeutic program this is for you!
Enroll today for lifetime access. There's nothing else like this course - and it's a fraction of the price of a conference or an off-site seminar.
Whether it's a first connection or reconnection, the way we show up in our relationships can pave the way for deeper connections. In this first part of the course, you'll learn ways to connect, build trust, and establish feelings of safety.
For better or worse, each encounter we have with another person has an impact on their life. In this second part of the course, you'll learn how to be mindful of your own internal process and how attending to the relational space itself can shape it to be one that nurtures new growth and learning.
Every kid has the inner resources they need to live out their lives successfully. In this third part of the course, you'll explore how to create the conditions - in the context of your relationship - for them to access their strengths, desires, and future.
