COVID-19: Resources for Families and Educators

Safety. Connection. Problem-Solving.

Trauma-Informed, Evidence-Based Social Emotional Learning from Dr. Becky Bailey

For 20+ years, “We’re all in this together,” has been a core tenet of Conscious Discipline. It seems ironic that a virus that requires social distancing to slow its spread has drawn our attention to how intimately connected we truly are as friends, neighbors, communities and nations. Safety, connection and problem-solving are the most valuable contribution we can offer to those around us as we navigate these unprecedented times (and beyond). Breathe with me. We can handle this … together.

Cultivating Connection and Contribution in a COVID-19 World

Humankind is genetically wired to seek out connection and contribute to each other’s wellbeing. The bonds between us have defined our families and communities since the beginning of time. With the threat of COVID-19 shutting down not just communities, but entire countries, we are tasked with finding new ways to connect and contribute.

We can choose to shift our perspective to see this unprecedented threat as an unprecedented opportunity to build unity, compassion, connection, contribution and caring within our families and communities.
