Rebuilding Community: Navigating the New Normal

Dr. Mark Greenberg, Dorothy Morelli, Denine Parks-Goolsby, and Dr. Joseph Gerics

As educators, our lives have been forever changed. We have all experienced trauma in some form. As schools begin to make plans for reopening, it is imperative that we address the effect of this pandemic experience not only for our students, but also for the adults who work with them. This webinar will discuss ideas about how schools can begin to rebuild a sense of community including exploring adult social and emotional needs, collaborating on strategies to build caring connections with our students and colleagues.
