Essential to Engaging Families: Creating Cognitive and Emotional Safe Space

How can we create an environment that encourages families to connect to programs for partnering in their children’s education – and avoid creating conditions that make families uncomfortable?

This interactive conversation will give participants scenarios in which to understand the concepts of our own cognitive comfort as well as how our past experiences dictate our emotional comfort.

Using these personal insights, we will discuss some quick and easy strategies to avoid creating cognitive and emotional discomfort so that our families will take advantage of the opportunities our programs offer them.

Conversation Catalyst: Lauri DiGalbo, Educator and Disability Consultant
