Professional Development + SEL Certification + Webinar Workshops & more

Whether you are an administrator, teacher, paraprofessional, or teaching assistants, you may be wondering what skills will be needed in your school post-pandemic for Recovery and Return. Or, how can your school be responsive now to the SEL needs of all students via e-learning?

We are here to help! Not only is this an opportunity to explore trauma-informed practices, mindfulness, and well-being, it is also a window to build a supportive community to combat the loneliness of isolation and increased screen time.

Professional Development

Our highly-trained team of SEL Specialists work to provide a customized professional development experience that empowers teachers to use SEL in the classroom to help students learn self-awareness and self-regulation skills. We offer PD on specific topics, as well as whole-year PD for all school stakeholders on implementing a personalized, trauma-informed SEL approach in your school. Reach out to erika.panichelli@mindfulpractices.us to schedule our team to bring high-quality SEL PD to your school!
