VALBEC are pleased to offer members and friends of VALBEC a special professional development session with Dr Kirke Olson Psy.D. and Sher Kamman Psy.D.
This session will outline the range of normal emotional responses that many of us are experiencing with Covid-19. It will help us understand our very human reactions and give us some helpful and useful strategies to use to lower stress and to feel more in control of our lives again.
We will be guided in understanding what might be happening for ourselves as well as our (adult and young adult) students who already may be experiencing disadvantage through cultural exclusivity, poverty, learning disabilities - other disabilities and general hardship.
It will give us ideas about addressing these barriers / issues in a way that allows insight and offers options for action rather than being stuck in overwhelm.
Together, Kirke and Sher run the Positivity Company in Concord, New Hampshire where they are committed to applying the science of positive psychology, interpersonal neurobiology and mindfulness to bring about change. They work as consultants to schools and their leadership teams, to bring about authentic and long term positive change.
The Positivity Company has helped improve the organisational climate in schools and other organisations by using research from neuroscience, the psychology of human relationships, motivation and mindfulness.
