Compassion, Empathy, and Education For All Levels Saturdays: October 12 and 19, 2019, at 11:00 am EDT Webinar Facilitator(s): Rita Cassiano and Gingi Lahera
Compassion and non-violent communication help us develop a better understanding of ourselves and those around us. They both promote social bonding. A proactive mindset enhances essential life skills such as: creativity, collaboration, active listening, innovation, self-awareness, and flexible thinking. This webinar will explore these topics, research supporting them, and how it relates to our work in the classroom. There will be plenty of opportunities to reflect and share as we consider how to build stronger relationships through a compassionate heart. Rita Cassiano and Gingi Lahera are co-founders of A.L.M.A. – Arts Language Music, Alliance, as well as Montessori Educators. Rita and Gingi believe that every person has the ability to create, and to share our gifts is a human need. They guide others in discovering paths of self-expression, cultural consciousness and connection.
