In this workshop, Dr. Ozawa-de Silva and Ms. Knox will provide an experiential introduction to an innovative program in Social, Emotional, and Ethical (SEE) Learning developed at Emory University. After an overview of the SEE Learning program, with its Personal, Social, and Systems domains, emphasis will be placed on participants gaining firsthand experience in the resilience-building section of SEE Learning, which focuses on easy to learn skills that can help students regulate their nervous system and gain “body literacy.” Participants will learn these skills and how they can be taught and explored in a classroom or whole-school setting. The workshop will show how these skills can serve as a foundation for the cultivation of trauma-informed mindfulness and attention; for self-regulation and the navigation of emotions; and ultimately for addressing systemic issues such as inequity and social change.
