The Building Blocks of Self-Esteem Deb Norris

Special Topics: Afterschool ,
Sponsor: Creative Lives
Instructor: Maureen Burford, M.Ed.

One of the most common hopes we share for children is that they like themselves -- that they feel good about who they are from the inside out. With healthy self-esteem, children become open to feedback, feel comfortable asking questions, and remain curious to learn! In this workshop, we will look at a new holistic approach to building self-esteem: Ellen Tadd's Framework for Wise Education. Tadd's approach is based on her pioneering and practical discoveries of the human energy system, often referred to as the chakra system. The Framework translates these discoveries into tangible tools and strategies we can integrate into classroom and one-on-one settings. As Director of Creative Lives, I have applied Framework strategies with breakthrough results for children struggling with positive self-regard and accompanying stress. In this workshop, you will discover how self-esteem develops in the chakra system, what undermines esteem, and practice new strategies that have tangible, positive results for young people.
