A Webinar Series: Re-Envisioning Educational Systems As We Move Through And Beyond COVID-19
Join Dr. Joelle van Lent and Dr. Gillian Boudreau for a webinar series on navigating the uncharted waters of a COVID-19 educational reality. Joelle and Gillian examine how to find the courage, capacity, and tools to build modern, sustainable, collaborative systems that can work better than business as usual. Throughout the series, they explore creative noncompliance – a process of following the principles governing best practices in education, while leaving room for educator and student voices in determining the implementation of these principles.
Webinar #6 – How to Re-Envision Re-Emerging: Working With the Stress of Recovery
with Joelle van Lent, Psy.D, Gillian Boudreau, Ph.D, and Jackie Landsberg, O.T.
As we move beyond the acute phase of the pandemic, children and adolescents will re-emerge to familiar and unfamiliar experiences. Students may notice sensory, emotional, and cognitive regulation challenges, as well as differences in their social endurance skills. The presenters discuss how we can: help each other notice our reactions as typical within atypical situations; build confidence in our capacity to cope well; and rebuild tolerance and regulation abilities. Jackie Landsberg, an occupational therapist, joins us to offer strategies to proactively position us for success with reopening our schools.
