From our experience of working in education we know that each school has its own unique development that unfolds – professional development days are not one-size-fits-all. We shape the programme for the day following a discussion with you to ensure that it targets your school’s present needs. Some possible themes:
Social and emotional learning
Neuroscience for the classroom
Taking a coaching approach in the classroom
Working with parents
Dealing with students of concern

Experience the long lasting benefits of parental coaching in a comprehensive programme that addresses the following areas:
Why We Do What We Do Parents will learn who and what influenced their parenting and the effect that this is having on their lives. This awareness will lead parents to take more intentional decisions as they learn to keep what works and change what works less.
Why Children Do What They Do
Children communicate their emotional hurts and needs through their behaviour. During this session, parents will learn how to recognize their children’s unmet needs communicated through their behaviour.
How To Respond
In the final group session, parents will learn how to effectively respond instead of react to their children’s behaviour. Parents will learn how to differentiate between discipline and support. They will also learn how and when to support and/or discipline.
Bring it home
Finally parents will directly experience the benefits of coaching as they engage in a personalized coaching session which will make it possible for parents to apply their newly acquired knowledge to any situation of their choice.
Social and Emotional Training for Youths
LYNC offers the option for schools to address participant's social emotional competencies through fun activities and workshops. The program can be designed to tackle the specific needs of the school or participants. Workshops would tackle social emotional competencies, such as:
Relationship and team building
Anger and stress management
Appreciation to LYNC for a well-organized and enriching workshop. I found it to be most beneficial to my growth and development on both a personal and professional basis. Such events are a great opportunity to continue to share and learn from fellow professionals, from diverse and related fields. Looking forward to future events and activities. Keep it up!
