Join ASCD authors Julie Causton and Kate MacLeod for a webinar detailing the foundational concepts and practical strategies from their new book From Behaving to Belonging: The Inclusive Art of Supporting Students Who Challenge Us. Learn how to shift from a traditional “behavior management” mindset—one that is focused on compliance, rewards, and consequences—to a strengths-based, loving approach that encourages the radical act of creating more inclusive and caring schools.

Julie and Kate will share practical strategies and ideas to help you
Focus on students’ strengths, gifts, and talents.
Meet students’ social, emotional, and academic needs.
Rethink challenging behavior as communication.
Identify barriers to student success in the cultural, social, and environmental landscape.
Practice self-care and compassion in order to ensure that you feel prepared to bring your best self to this important work.

This webinar will leave you feeling inspired to reconnect with your core values and beliefs about students and teaching and ready to support all students—even those with the most challenging behavior—from a place of creativity, empathy, collaboration, and love.
