The Power of Emotionally-Inclusive Practices in Education and Youthwork



In this session we will explore Emotionally-Inclusive Practices, a framework used to integrate emotion into every part of the educational experience. Emotions lay the foundation for behavior that ground us in how we see the world and respond in our everyday interactions.
