Supporting parent and caregiver SEL and wellbeing is essential if we are to build caring and inclusive communities where empathy abounds and all people thrive.

IFSEL supports parents and caregivers in the following ways:

  1. 1.   As part of a school becoming an IFSEL school or alongside on-site Consulting . For more information on becoming an IFSEL School or working with IFSEL generally, email elizabeth@instituteforsel.net.
  2. 2.   Through IFSEL’s innovative Online Workshop Series “Nurturing Parent and Caregiver SEL” - available to schools and all non-education workplaces.

NURTURING PARENT AND CAREGIVER SEL


To support the work schools and companies are already doing to activate SEL and wellbeing across their communities, IFSEL has developed a Series of online Workshops for parents. The Series offers parents the chance to come together to uncover both a shared understanding and a range of practical tools and insights to bring SEL alive at home.

The Series comprises one 35-minute recorded, asynchronous introductory Workshop and three 90-minute, synchronous themed Workshops. This allows parents and caregivers to watch the recorded introduction and then ‘drop-in’ to any of the themed Workshops. Each themed Workshop is therefore effectively a stand-alone experience, but collectively the Series offers a deep and renewing experience.


RECORDED, ASYNCHRONOUS, INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP

This short, recorded session is a recommended prerequisite for any of the themed Workshops. The purpose of this Workshop is to introduce IFSEL and our framework, to give an overview of SEL language and research, and to share intersections of SEL and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.


THEMED, SYNCHRONOUS, WORKSHOPS

These sessions can be offered as one group for K-12th Grade Parents, or parents can be split into groups by age group of their children. Price varies accordingly.

  • Big Moments: Bringing Calm when Emotions Run High

This session offers parents an opportunity to reflect on the full range of emotions that parents and children might experience, particularly during this pandemic. We will offer a framework and practical strategies for managing and regulating our own emotions as well as coaching our children to better manage theirs.

  • Communication and Conflict: Building and RepairingRelationships and Getting to Peace

This session offers parents practical tools to build and maintain positive approaches to communication within the family, and explores ways to repair and heal relationships when conflict arises or communication falters. We will focus on active and reflective listening, styles of communication, and practices for conflict transformation.

  • The Open Session for Parents: Facilitated Peer-to-Peer support

This session utilizes The Open Session format to bring connection and support to parents. Parents will anonymously share dilemmas, decisions, or concerns they are facing, and IFSEL team members facilitate peer-to-peer sharing of support, clarification and wisdom. Concurrent sessions can be offered for Elementary Grade Parents and Middle/High School parents.

IFSEL also offers this Online Parent and Caregiver SEL Education Workshop Series for companies and all non-education workplaces.
