WEBINAR | Evidence-based Practices for Promoting Resilience in School Communities
Many aspects of school climate can affect student and faculty/staff well-being, but which aspects of school life are most closely linked with mental health? Using evidence-based surveys and cutting-edge data science, Authentic Connections has surveyed over 40,000 students and 8,000 school adults at 150 schools since the start of the pandemic to determine the factors most closely linked with community well-being. In this session, Dr. Suniya Luthar and Nina Kumar will:

  • describe the factors that have proven to be most important to student and faculty/staff well-being during the pandemic;
  • highlight aspects of school climate that are commonly mentioned as areas for improvement across schools;
  • and share specific best practices, providing concrete recommendations that can be applied to protect social-emotional well-being in your community.

Date: October 7
Time: 1:00PM
Presenters: Suniya Luthar, Professor Emerita at Columbia University’s Teachers College and Co-Founder and Chief Research Officer of Authentic Connections; and Nina L. Kumar, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Authentic Connections
