All Parents, Educators, Childminders – Anybody involved with the education of children, this is a very special, one off offer.Join Susan Stillman, Ed. D., Director of Education, Global Office, Six Seconds – The Emotional Intelligence
Network where she will share with you how:
An effective social-emotional learning (SEL) environment creates the conditions for optimal learning at school and at home, while equipping children with some of the most important skills for a life well lived.
Using the highly practical Six Seconds Model as a framework, educators and parents have a clear, measurable scope of essential SEL skills and a transformational process for putting emotional intelligence (EQ) into action.
In this session, we’ll consider your goals for your children’s education and discuss how EQ and SEL might contribute to reaching these goals.
