This years presentation topics by Tara and Jeff:

Social and Emotional Learning in Action

Trainer: Tara Flippo
This workshop will provide the context for social and emotional learning in schools and the important work from CASEL- the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning- the nation’s leading organization providing evidence based competencies and outcomes.
Additionally, I will highlight The Browne Center’s new book- Social and Emotional Learning in Action: Experiential Activities to Positively Impact School Climate, an easy to use sourcebook which addresses the five competencies promoted by CASEL (publication date April 2016).

Bullying, Empathy, and Monkeys

Trainer: Jeff Frigon
Research suggests that which most educators already know; that empathy and caring are directly linked to bullying. The more empathy we have for each other, the more likely we are to be kind to one another and not bully (or be bullied). By building healthy communities and understanding the connection between empathy, vulnerability, fear, and bullying, we can act in a preventative rather than a reactive way.
This experiential workshop will dive deeply into what the research shows to be effective and why; and do so using new and reframed classic activities as well as participant-driven discussion.

This month two University of New Hampshire courses taught by our staff combined to provide development opportunities for both! The Outdoor Leadership students taught the Adventure Activities students how to facilitate on the Artificial Climbing Wall in New Hampshire Hall.

Both courses are in the Kinesiology Department though one is in the Outdoor Education major and the other falls under the Physical Education major.
