Essential Workshops

Woven throughout Heart in Mind workshops are principles of relationship-based education including human development, empathy and compassion, a growth mindset, desire for equity and social justice, a focus on the transformational power of education, authentic engagement and reflective practice. We synthesize the latest research in neuroscience with classical training in human development and applied field experience to bring content that is accessible and ready for application in your setting.

Professional Development sessions range from 50 minutes to full day or multi-day sessions. Heart in Mind will work with organizations to tailor sessions for the level and depth of topic and specific skills needed for successful implementation.
