The SSC Series is primarily developed for the SSC School Psychologist and SSC Counselor. With the exception of Session One (Dyslexia), the focus will the on Social Emotional Learning (SEL). This will include a guest speaker, Ron Hertel from OSPI who works on this very topic. Anthony Brock will also lead us in understanding and implementing Restorativee Justice/Discipline. Additionally we will look at Morning Meetings as it aligns with SEL. In the last two sessions we will first  turn our attention to promoting self awareness for all staff and how to accomplish that. Finally, we will explore mindfulness/vicarious trauma and how our awareness plus interventions will help us and the people around us.
