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 Parenting 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 Parenting Series is comprised of:
Parents and caregivers can watch the recorded introduction and then ‘drop-in’ to any or all of the themed Workshops. Each themed Workshop is a stand-alone experience, but collectively the Parenting Series offers a deep and renewing experience.
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.
This session offers parents an opportunity to reflect on the full range of emotions that parents and children might experience, particularly during this post pandemic world. 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.
This session will offer parents and caregivers practical tools for guiding their children to make compassionate and responsible decisions, for themselves and in their relationships with others. We’ll offer some insights for navigating complex or challenging conversations that can arise, and share an easy-to-use problem solving protocol to use in coaching your child to greater resilience and independence.
