Ended Sep 30, 2022

Full course description

Course Description

  • Participants will gain a deep understanding of the critical importance of teaching the topic of relationships and boundaries. Identify your own values and bias to think critically how this impacts your ability to discuss boundaries and relationships with students. Explore the practices in your classroom to see if you are setting up students for successful relationships – or confusing signals of false friendship. Participants will also have an introduction to the types of boundaries and how they are formed. You will learn how to turn the more abstract nuances of relationships and boundaries into concrete talking points and teachable moments and learn anticipatory intervention techniques for common behavior deemed sexualized. Participants will also walk away with a clear plan on how to create a learning environment that supports healthy boundaries and relationships for students with Significant Support Needs.
