Have you noticed your kids yell, whine, beg, or use some other bothersome tactic to try and communicate what they want? Or perhaps you're noticing they're just not responding to your requests at all? You're not alone! The truth is we all need to learn communication skills and practice them before we get it right. The same goes for our kids. When kids are taught strategies for talking and listening in effective ways, their relationships with family and friends become stronger and more...
Students will learn: -The importance of communication skills (using a silly game to illustrate the point) -Types of communication (passive, aggressive, assertive), as well as body language and tone of voice -How to listen well, including the concept of empathy -Practice using I-statements to express thoughts in a respectful and assertive way.
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!

1 hour 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.
I help kids bounce back no matter what life throws at them!
