Class Title: SEL + RP + DEIB = We Go Together!

Both SEL and RP are used to systematically and intentionally build equitable learning environments. In this session, Dr. Speight, Ph.D., LCSW-C, will briefly review the basic tenets of SEL and RP from a DEIB perspective, and discuss the integration impacts and benefits of RP and SEL in numerous settings when aligned. Participants will also gain the basic principles of facilitating Restorative Conversations from an equity lens, and learn how to lead Community Building Circles.
