How students feel when they are in school shapes their learning and development. By effectively addressing emotional security in schools, teachers can help their students become more open to and engaged in learning, staff will be more cognizant of the individual needs of students, and risk prevention strategies will automatically be in place. This course is designed to develop an in-depth framework of emotional security in schools as we believe it needs to be deeply embedded into school culture. This course will provide strategies for implementing emotional security into a school system for all students and staff.
