Class Experience

The topics that will be taught and practiced include:
     Weeks 1 & 2: Emotion Regulation Skills
     Weeks 3 & 4: Healthy Thinking Habits
     Weeks 5 & 6: Communication Skills
     Weeks 7 & 8: Problem-Solving, Personal Strengths, & Support Networks
I believe resilience is a critical trait for anyone working toward being the best they can be, and it is something that can be strengthened like a muscle. I am personally committed to helping build resilient kids, and ultimately resilient families, in my own community and beyond. I have a background as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. However, most of my work has been as a Resiliency Skills Trainer with a program out of UCLA Semel Institute of Neuroscience and Human Behavior. In that position, I taught several skill-building workshops with groups of kids (ages 3-13) and adults. I also worked with families individually. I taught the skills of emotion regulation (including healthy thinking styles), communication, goal setting, and problem-solving.

I am excited to bring my background and personal style to Outschool so I can help you accomplish your goals. My approach to teaching resiliency skills with kids is especially unique because I focus on connecting with each child in a way that creates a FUN and ENGAGING learning environment! I can't wait to meet your child and begin learning together!
Student will be asked to practice the skills during their day-to-day life, but no homework will be assigned to turn in.
PDF's will be provided for each topic to write on. If printing the PDF is not an option, students can use blank paper and pen/pencil for each class. If possible, your child will use a red, orange, yellow, and green marker/color pencil/crayon in class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I encourage parents to listen in to the lessons or ask your child about what s/he learned so that the skills can be applied as a family for maximum benefit. Because this is a skill-building class, it is not a substitute for individual, group, or family therapy. Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like further guidance with the material.
