Event description
Social Re-Entry: Building a Better Community by Navigating Differences and Resolving Conflict with Empathy & Respect by Carrie Goldman

About this event

Join award-winning author and curriculum creator Carrie Goldman for a presentation on how to help kids navigate sensitive social situations and resolve conflict using healthy relationship skills. When students exhibit unkind behaviors, it is because they haven’t developed core social competencies, such as empathy, compassion, and conflict resolution skills. As parents and educators, we can strive to teach those missing skills instead of shaming kids when they make mistakes. Topics to be covered include:

  • Differentiating between normal social conflict and actual bullying, and how best to respond to each situation without engaging in victim blaming.
  • Embracing diversity by examining our own multicultural identities and implicit biases.
  • Overcoming the inaction that defines bystanders; choosing to act in support of targets.
  • Exploring the power of crowds, the pressure to obey, and the importance of belonging to as many diverse tribes as possible.
  • Taking accountability when we make mistakes and working to repair the damage.
  • Engaging in distress tolerance when we are upset, angry, hurt, and uncomfortable.
  • Managing social anxiety as we re-enter the in-person world during the pandemic.
