This interactive session seeks to frame "hope" as an action word. Sean presents an empathy-based model (HOPE Wheel) that can be used to establish impactful and supportive relationships with students.

The Hope Wheel presents four directions: respect, understanding, relationships, and responsibility. Where we fall on the Hope Wheel is a reflection of our developing personal identity and perspective. You will learn a practical and very efficient process to assess levels of student development in each of the four directions on the wheel.

The process is grounded in Adlerian psychology (Private Logic) and explores from what perspectives students answer the prompts, "I am... others are... the world is... therefore?" Their answers ultimately define their personal "learning story," the one you need to know to support them in purposeful, empathic ways.

This is an engaging, interactive session. Be prepared to explore your own bias as you learn how to frame resilient relationships that guide students in sharing their values and perspectives openly with you so you can essentially support them in purposeful and effective ways.
