Education Now | The Healing Power of Friendships and Relationships

The pandemic has caused many of us to recognize the power of relationships — for ourselves, and for our children. Have your children's friendships changed — or suffered? Are your students finding it hard to re-ignite their stalled connections?  How can schools help to foster friendship — and prioritize strong relationships and a sense of belonging for every student? And what are the lessons we can take with us into our own adult lives?

Join us as we explore the sustaining power of friendships and relationships. Let's identify the ways in which relationships give us strength, help us learn, and keep us happy and well. We'll share strategies for prioritizing friendships and connections for our children and ourselves.
