Morning Session: 9:00am—12:00pm Discipline that Doesn’t Divide
One of the biggest challenges faced by parents, caregivers and educators is the safe discipline of children in their care. Given that connection is the greatest need a child has, discipline that protects this attachment is critical. Seven principles of attachment safe discipline will be discussed along with an understanding of the 4 most common principles that erode attachment and threaten development.
Afternoon Session: 1:00pm—4:00pm The Teachability Factor
Teaching doesn’t always result in learning and this discrepancy seems to be widening. Despite advances in curriculum, technology and pedagogy, the teachability of students is on the wane, making teaching much more difficult than it used to be or than it needs to be. Although the teachability of a student is the single most important factor in learning, this variable is rarely addressed. The psychological determinants of
learning will be teased apart to reveal the impact of attachment, immaturity and vulnerability in facilitating or impeding the learning process. Practical suggestions are provided as to how to improve the teachability of students will be discussed as well as the 4 natural contexts for learning.
