The Socially Resilient Child
While schools can do a lot to work through situations of teasing, in this lecture Kim offers some age appropriate simple strategies parents can give their children to avoid being caught up in the destructive cycle of teasing and bullying.
The Soul of Discipline
In this lecture, Kim speaks about the parental journey. This journey is filled with both precious moments and difficult situations. We often perceive how we are doing by the way in which we respond to the flash points of parenting. This lecture speaks to these moments, and how they will either refine or consume us.
The Compassionate Response
In this guided meditation Kim teaches participants a means of shifting reactive habits of communication and enables new ways of seeing others – your children, colleagues, partners, friends other family members. More importantly, it also enables you to shift reactive emotional habits and allows new ways of working with social tension, differences and other conflict.
In this lecture, Kim speaks about Social Inclusion approach. The social inclusion approach is a way of combating the problem of isolation that is, sadly, a growing part of the experience of most children today. Developed over 24 years with children from almost every continent, this approach gives practical playground, classroom and home based tools to work with social exclusion issues.
