Kaitlyn Mulcahy – Associate Director of the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health
Reflective practice is integral to good consulting, coaching, and teaching practices. Reflective practice ensures that professionals who work from a relationship-based perspective consistently keep their own experiences, development and bias in primary mind in order to ensure that it doesn’t negatively impact the work. Reflective practice includes cultivating a wondering state, rather than a judgmental position, when working with professionals, children and families, encouraging the processing of emotions and reactions as integral components to practice, and reflecting on ways that systemic and historical influences impact the work that we do with families and children. In this workshop, participants will learn the tenants of reflective practice, review strategies to embed reflection within consultation and coaching models, and engage in reflective experiential activities.
Taking the fear out of STEM presented by Michele Fortier – Early Childhood Consultant/ Trainer at Early Childhood Strategies and Executive Director of Cornerstone School of Summit.
Is your staff feeling overwhelmed when they hear they need to increase STEM in their classroom? Have they or your program decided this is an area in need of development? Are they unsure where to start? This training will provide an overview of how one program decided to embrace adding more STEM to their program and discovered how much was already there! Determining program/ personal goals, available/needed resources and discovering how much is already going on in the classrooms already will be the some of the goals for this interactive hands-on training. Don’t be afraid to join us!
Registration Deadline May 18th – No walk-ins
