Provincial Outreach & Regional Tour 2019

PROVINCIAL OUTREACH & REGIONAL TOUR 2019

Provincial Outreach Pro-D (for educators and support staff)
FISA’s 4th annual Provincial Outreach professional learning series is ready to go. This year’s focus is on supporting mental health in schools. The primary presenter will be Dr. Linda O’Neill, Associate Professor UNBC Counselling program. She will guide participants in understanding how trauma-informed practice can enhance social emotional learning (SEL). The videos and resources produced through the Early Action Initiative grant received by FISA will be revealed during the Provincial Outreach. These videos have a panel of experts explaining a variety of SEL approaches and strategies and feature independent school educators demonstrating the methods in action. This Provincial Outreach will be a valuable learning experience for school staff at all levels. Everyone is welcome.
