GENERAL SESSION INFORMATION
Bring On the PATH Workshops to Your Faculty, Parents and Teens
WHAT TO EXPECT: On the PATH presentations open with a dynamic and passionate review of our two-fold Purpose: to love God and to love others. All thoughts, choices, decisions, and relationships are rightly-oriented when rooted in this Purpose. Embracing one’s Purpose begs an essential question: “How can I do these two things?”
Within this faith-first framework, Social-Emotional Learning techniques are introduced. These skills equip teachers, students and parents to love God and others concretely and actively. They promote character formation and positive behavior patterns. Moreover, faith-first SEL skills support healthy and moral spiritual lives, classrooms, families, relationships and work places.
HOW IT WORKS: Work with Peg to customize your presentations.
Student workshops are arranged in three categories: Core Sessions, Maintenance Sessions, and Sessions for Building the Body. Basic PATH cornerstones are woven into every session, and each runs approximately 30-45 minutes. Sessions are are interactive and PowerPoint-based. Choose one session, or stack several for a half or full day event.
Faculty Retreats and Professional Development Workshops frame Social-Emotional Learning techniques as necessary skills for faith-filled, Purpose-driven living. They are the tools we employ when we actively love God and others. Almost without fail, attendees find On the PATH seminars valuable both personally and professionally. They leave with the desire and tools to bring positive change to classrooms and relationships.
