The Solution Focused School Conference
When: Friday 2nd October to Monday 5th October
Connecting with your Kids: A Seminar on Relationships for the Solution Focused Schools Conference
In this seminar, I will focus on the importance of creating and building connected relationships with school children when implementing a Solution Focused approach to education. Although the practical ideas presented in this seminar may seem simple and obvious, they are not simplistic. We all know the importance of building relationships with others; however, this is an opportunity to serve as a reminder of how to connect students to their own solutions for solving their problems and challenges. This seminar will contain simple, practical, down-to-earth ways for educators to connect with students.
Paul J. Leslie is an author, educator, and psychotherapist in Aiken, South Carolina. He specializes in creative, resource-directed approaches to working with individuals and families. Paul is presently the coordinator of the Behavioral Sciences program at Aiken Technical College. He recently interviewed me and we discussed family connection during the current age of screens and technology.
In this interview, I talk with author, teacher, and trainer, Andy McNeilly, about the importance of choosing to directly connect with our children in an age of technology overload. Andy discusses how to begin easily implementing strategies to create family interactions which help foster emotional connection and fun. He also discusses the impact technology has had on the family and the need for parents to model positive connections for their children. Paul J. Leslie.
