In this Webinar

Educators are repeatedly told that relationships matter and that if you can’t connect with students you won’t be able to teach them. Research confirms that warm, supportive, and communicative educator-student relationships are associated with higher levels of student behavioral self-regulation, sense of school belonging, and academic achievement. Strong school-based relationships are especially beneficial for students who have experienced interpersonal trauma and who lack strong support networks outside of school.
