These events are designed to inspire and inform, with an approach that is both light-hearted and serious-minded. The overarching goal is to help us all find more mindful ways to improve children's mental health and well-being.
The benefits to your family, school, or organization will include:
Each program can be tailored to meet your organization’s particular needs. And each training is offered in 3 sizes: Brief/Keynote (1-1.5 hrs), Standard (3 hrs), Comprehensive (6 hrs). The Standard and Comprehensive programs can be delivered in one installment (half-day or full-day trainings) or delivered in smaller increments over several weeks or months.
When working with schools, I offer follow-up coaching sessions with staff to ensure effective implementation of the skills. These online consultations include live Q&A discussions, demonstrations, and guided practice.
Standard speaking fees apply, though they may be reduced or waived for certain community or charity events.
Bottom line, I care deeply that the information I provide can make a difference in kids’ lives.
So, let’s see what kind of a difference we can make together!
