    Using Relationships in  the Classroom to Create a Safe and Supportive Learning Environment

    Presented by Jean Rounds, LCSW

    Tuesday, March 13, 2018

    7:00 PM

    Rogers Park Montessori School

    1800 Balmoral

    Chicago, IL 

    The presentation will focus on how early relationships with the mother/father, called the attachment relationship, can influence the relationship a child develops with teachers and a child's readiness for learning in the classroom.  We will look at different attachment patterns, how they affect the developing brain, and how to create a secure environment for children and an openness to learning, particularly when early relationships were stressful.  Positive relationships with teachers are particularly important for children who struggle with academic or behavior problems, so their experience in school can provide a safe haven for emotional growth and learning.

    Jean Rounds is a licensed clinical social worker and staff clinical at Erikson Institute's Center for Children and Families.  She had provided therapy to individuals and to families with children from birth through adolescence since 1996 and has served as a clinical supervisor in different settings.  She has extensive training in supporting healthy parent-child relationships, and helps parents understand their children's behavior as a way of communicating their needs, feelings, and areas of distress using a collaborative approach.  She brings this approach to children who experience issues of anxiety, depression, behavior problems, and childhood trauma.  She has worked with children in school settings, providing interventions with a focus on communication, social skills, peer relationships, self-esteem, and academic confidence.

    A Certificate of Attendance can be provided upon request.

    PLD/SE membership is required for CPDU credits.  Members will receive 1.5 CPDUs for this program.
