The YCDI! Resource Book is invaluable for those responsible for supporting the implementation of YCDI! Education at their school is ongoing professional development.
This online resource is ideal for teachers wishing to learn more about explaining and teaching positive attitudes and social-emotional skills to students, including supportive classroom and school-wide practices.
It is no surprise that evaluations of social and emotional learning programs reveal that for a maximum number of students to be positively affected by SEL programs, SEL must occur beyond just the regular teaching of lessons from SEL curricula (e.g. Program Achieve).
Stress Management for Teachers and Principals: A Professional Development Program
Today, schools and school principals are responsible for supporting the mental health and wellbeing of staff, and continuing professional development is an obvious place to start.
Stress Management for Teachers and Principals enables schools to build the psychological capital of staff (who they are as people) to manage stress and cope with the myriad of challenges and demands of working and teaching in schools.
Coaching Teachers and Parents to Build Social-Emotional Strengths of Students with Achievement, Behaviour and Mental Health Issues
Written for educators and mental health practitioners responsible for developing plans and programs for individual students of all ages who have behaviour problems, under-achieve, and excessively worry.
Through their investigations, Professor Michael Bernard and international researchers uncovered delays in the social-emotional development of these students.
Teachers and parents require a skill set to build the SELs of these students. This resource helps coach teachers and parents of identified/referred students in steps to take to build their social-emotional strengths.
Attitudes and Behaviours for Learning (AB4L): A Professional Development Program to Offer at Your School
The AB4L program is designed for professional development coordinators and leaders who conduct teacher training sessions (e.g., curriculum coordinator, special educator, school psychologist, school principal/deputy).
Extensive research with students who underperform in their reading and maths reveals significant delays in their attitudes and behaviours needed for learning engagement. In a short period, teachers who participate in AB4L learn how to teach students to recognise negative and positive self-talk and behaviours for learning needed for classroom instruction, small group and dyadic work, and homework. Published research has shown this has a very positive impact.
