The Importance of Healthy relationships for a Positive, Welcoming School Climate

What are the elements of a positive, welcoming school climate? What practices are known to prevent violence and bullying? This workshop will focus on one such practice: the promotion of healthy relationships. It will help identify the characteristics of healthy relationships and the strategies required in the classroom and at school. It will also reaffirm the schools’ mission to socialize, as a component of educational success for all students.
