Subject: Re: Training on tutoring and mindfulness

 

We have used the article "The Mistake I Made with My Grieving Friend" by Celeste Headlee and discussed the idea of shift vs. support focus in that article to show tutors how to frame more mindful conversations. 

 

Our Level 3 tutors have also expanded presentations on self-regulation theory using metacognitive work by Leonard Geddes and Saundra McGuire. We also dabble in Brave Space Theory in order to cover topics related to diversity awareness, too. I have some of their presentations on file as well if you'd like them.

 

We emphasize the concept that how you regulate your own emotions as a tutor affects your tutoring strategies as well as choices. Yet, from the student angle, we highlight the idea that there is no way to know the depth of feelings and struggles of the person in front you, so the best response is the most compassionate one.

 

Hope this helps. 

 

Sincerely,

Hello, All.

 

I hope you All are having a great week.

 

I am preparing a training session for my CRLA Level 2 tutors on mindfulness and tutoring.

 

Does anybody have materials to recommend or share? 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Ira
