Course Curriculum

Claudia's break down of what our school's culture should involve was so helpful. I love her attention to creating systems that are personal and intentional. She has clearly practiced these systems and shares them with a kind passion that motivates one to think deeply about the systems and practices in their school's culture.

After listening to the lecture, it immediately happened that I had a conflict with my daughter and I used some of the strategies that were mentioned. Surprisingly, the conflict was resolved in a good way and faster than usual. Thank you.

As a school administrator, I found this workshop to be informative, providing specific tools I could immediately implement to improve positive relationships with parents, staff and students.

-Carolyn Sheeran

I always need work with my confrontation skills. This was really informative in the ways I can go around that. I realized that I can be loud to get my point across. With the non violent method I can work on my confrontation skills to better them and help others understand better how I feel.

In addition to being a classroom teacher I am also the head of my department. Over the past few years I have occasionally found myself in conflict with the teachers in my department. Ms. Mann has given possible strategies to help get out of the 'drama triangle' and find foster a better working environment.
