Day School Leaders Network

Facilitator: Dr. Betsy Stone
Format: Virtual

About this Network:

There is typically a divide between what teachers are feeling, what they want/need from their leadership, and what the leadership can provide.

In this Network, Dr. Betsy Stone will present new ways to think about promoting Mental Health in a school environment, with practical suggestions for how to support the wellness of students, teachers, and staff. All sessions will be geared to educational leaders with their needs in mind. Participants will engage with one another in different formats to develop deeper relationships and create a culture of collaboration and problem-solving. Sessions are designed to deepen the participants understanding of:

  • Empathy
  • Empathetic communication and problem-solving
    • Listening, processing
    • Responding
  • Resilience
  • Trauma
  • Post-traumatic growth
  • Understanding parents through a “generational” lens

Each session will be a combination of didactic teaching and applied, collaborative work.

Additional Information:

This network is designed for Day School/Yeshiva educational leaders.
