Shifting the Lens

Sindy Dawkins-Schade, SHADES of Development
Grades: PreK – 8
It is more important than ever that our afterschool teams working with children and youth understand child development, trauma, best practices and recovery strategies. How do we educate and inspire our teams to shift their lens to dig deep when children and youth exhibit troubling behaviors, or poor school performance? This workshop will share a framework to begin shifting the lens of child and youth workers from asking “what is wrong with you?” to asking “what happened to you?” Learn how to disseminate information, provide tools, set up and track training, and provide strategies and coaching to help child and youth workers better support student success
