At Equanimity PDO, we will guide you through activities that immerse you in the learning experience and help you identify in yourself the skills that students need to be successful.
“Students can better respond to the effects of trauma by developing social-emotional competencies. The brain’s neuroplasticity makes it possible for repeated experiences to shape the brain and even reverse the effects of chronic stress,” says Susan Ward-Roncalli, a Social-Emotional Learning Facilitator for the Division of Instruction with the Los Angeles Unified School District. For our most at-risk students, who live in poverty and/or who may witness or experience traumatic experiences, SEL is an extraordinary tool for repairing the damage and for building lifetime coping skills.
With Equanimity POD, we will help equip you with the skills needed to genuinely empathize and impact students who need trauma-informed support.
