Addressing Anxiety: Creating a Positive School Culture Using Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Framework

To truly impact school climate and create a culture of safe learning for students, a framework that incorporates system change is essential. Social Emotional Learning is a framework that allows for change by addressing system factors such as: values and beliefs driving school climate, adult interactions, interdisciplinary communication, community connections, and district policies. Innovative ideas for reflection, collaboration, and team-led change will be presented.

*****The 2017-2018 school year has had weather challenges which necessitated rescheduling some conferences. In order to facilitate awarding Professional Development Points (PDPs), we will be issuing Professional Development Points (PDPs) under the heading of Mental Health and Safety Conferences. Any combination of conferences an individual attends will be used to accumulate PDPs. They will not have to be linked, as previously required.
PDPs certificates will be issued at the end of the school year for all MPY conferences you attended during this school year. PDPs can only be issued to participants who have attended the conferences and submitted the appropriate paperwork. PDP certificates will be emailed to attendees. 

*Applications for NASW and MaMHCA continuing education credits have been submitted for all Spring Mental Health Series Conferences.
