About This Library

Peace at Home Parenting’s Amy Alamar, Ed D and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, will introduce the research behind gratitude and share the benefits of practicing gratitude. We know a regular practice increases a  student’s sense of belonging, strengthens relationships, increases happiness, builds self-esteem, reduces stress & anxiety, supports resilience, nurtures motivation, improves academic performance, and encourages engagement in extra-curriculars. We will also introduce research-based methods of practice including journaling, letter writing, and compiling a strengths inventory. Support for social-emotional growth does not just happen during school hours – especially now, with so many families helping with hybrid and distance learning. We will also explore how young people can apply the skills they learn to strengthen family relationships and well-being and make an authentic home-school connection.

Peace at Home offers workshops for Educators.
