We provide world-class professional development in the Responsive Classroom approach to social-emotional learning (SEL). Responsive Classroom is a student-centered, social and emotional learning (SEL) approach to teaching and discipline. It is comprised of a set of research- and evidence-based practices designed to create safe, joyful, and engaging classroom and school communities for both students and teachers. Schools and teachers that adopt the Responsive Classroom approach focus on (1) creating optimal learning conditions for students to develop the academic, social, and emotional skills needed for success in and out of school, and (2) building positive school and classroom communities where students learn, behave, hope, and set and achieve goals.

We will be offering our four-day courses in over thirty locations in person and virtually*.

* Please note that in the event your chosen course is unable to occur in-person due to local COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, your registration will confirm your space at a virtual event for the same dates and times. See FAQ for scheduling and other important information.  


Join us at one of our upcoming Institutes to attend a four-day course and learn with a group of your peers from around the world!
