The Courage to Reach Inward and Outward: The Power of Reflective Practice Return to listing


Developing partnerships is both joyful and challenging work which requires reflection both inward, (for our own individual growth) and outward, (with each other). Our partnerships are strengthened when reflection is integrated into our practice.  Join this half-day interactive workshop to experience guided reflection through journaling, conversations, and other strategies to support our ongoing engagement in the important work of inclusion. Using Janice Fialka’s writing as a springboard for our thinking and discussion, this session provides opportunities to explore and create:

  • practices for careful listening to ourselves and our partners for deep connections that honor vulnerability and diversity
  • brave space that fosters honest, trusting relationships and communication
  • connections between attending our own inner lives, our roles and the renewal of our commitment to supporting outcomes for our young children and their families.

The principles from the Center for Courage and Renewal© www.couragerenewal.org and The Courage to Teach, by Parker J. Palmer (2017) are the foundation of this session.
