“Participants will be trained in the strategies and theories within the Be STILL program. Be STILL provides tools to strengthen social and emotional resilience and can be applied to every part of our lives. This training will allow educators to have more authentic relationships with students and colleagues, naturally building a culture of care within the school community. Adults who work to strengthen their social and emotional health are more adept at handling stressful or uncomfortable situations in an objective, reflective way leading to a more productive and positive life.”
