On Saturday, October 24th, we provided nonviolence education training to about ten New England Yearly Meeting (Quaker) youth educators.
It was a wonderful opportunity to discuss the many dynamics of working with youth and how to best foster emotional awareness and healthy expression, especially anger. This skilled and compassionate group of educators work with youth in grades 1 through 8 and were seeking additional tools in conflict resolution skill-building. The Center's Claire Schaeffer-Duffy was assisted by two new facilitators with the Center, Jane and Jeff, for this training. We're so grateful for their time and energy and for the opportunity to connect with local educators with shared values and commitment. Thanks, all!
