Facilitation & Education

“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born…is a process of learning.”

—Jiddu Krishnamurti

We all learn with and from one another throughout our lives. As human beings, we are relational. Sometimes, through our work or other forms of group affiliation or membership, we experience struggles in an area that is common to us all. Learning with others in a group context provides the opportunity to connect, to belong, to share ideas and experiences and to come away with new awareness and increased competency and confidence.

Much of my experience teaching is focused in the area of interpersonal communication. I have facilitated training with groups that include caregivers, parents, students, employees and volunteers. Some of the topic areas that I have experience teaching include:

  • Learning to communicate our boundaries—both physical and emotional.
  • Verbal De-Escalation—learning how to respond to someone who is escalating with anger.
  • Self-Care—awareness and strategies for each of us.
  • Interpersonal Communication—with others at work, at home, at school.
  • Working with our Expectations.
  • Developing and Practicing Resiliency.
  • Building and Strengthening our Relationships.
  • Practicing Assertiveness and Conflict Resolution.
  • Understanding Others—the people we support or serve.

As an experienced workshop facilitator and educator, my approach is collaborative. I will meet with you to determine what the learning needs are for the people you support or employ. With an assessment of these needs, I develop a training curriculum that is tailored and designed to meet your learning outcomes. I am committed to ensuring that all training is both relevant and meaningful to the participants.
