Christian consults with thousands of school districts on lowering dropout rates, improving school climate, preventing bullying, and closing the achievement gap by teaching social and emotional education. He grew up on the streets near Washington D.C. and struggled with learning disabilities. Despite being told college was not an option, Christian obtained a masters degree and became a social worker in education, youth corrections, and a homeless program, and created the WhyTry organization to address the need for a new approach. Resilience is something we’re all born with. Most people just haven’t learned how to access what’s already inside of them. The WhyTry Program is a resilience education curriculum that provides simple, hands-on solutions for dropout prevention, violence prevention, truancy reduction, and increased academic success. The idea is straightforward: Teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember. WhyTry is based on sound empirical principles, including solution-focused brief therapy, social and emotional intelligence, and multisensory learning. In this presentation, participants will learn about the vital skills of resilience and creating a resilient climate. This engaging presentation will empower you to deliver these skills to students of any background and learning style, enabling them to thrive not only in school, but in life. Webinar attendance is free, but registration is required. We encourage registrants to sign up groups if more than one person would like to attend, as these webinars are ideal for multiple participants from one institution or organization. Click below to register. The registration deadline is Tuesday, December 13. We record and caption our webinars and make them, along with the speaker’s slides, available on our website.
