WEBINAR: Creating a Culture of Dignity With Megan Saxelby

Creating a Culture of Dignity With Megan Saxelby

This webinar is a call to action to transform the way we create communities where young people can thrive. Using Donna Hick’s Ten Elements of Dignity as the foundation for our relationships with young people, we create a shared vocabulary that empowers their development, supports their emotional needs, and teaches prosocial critical thinking. We will use this approach to give common-sense suggestions to manage the frequent struggles between young people and adults and support through communication breakdowns.

During this webinar, you will…

  • Be guided through a Tiny Guide on Dignity
  • Gain strategies to incorporate Dignity in the classroom and school community
  • Learn specific tools and a new framework to guide your interactions with young people

Bring your questions! We will open up for Q&A at the end. And a recording will be sent out after.

Tiny Guides

By registering for the webinar, you agree to receive communications from Cultures of Dignity and the New England League of Middle Schools.
