A Gentle Teaching framework guides the support and mentoring of others. Being able to connect a person’s sense of self with a perception of others, relies on social-emotional awareness and development.
As providers of direct services, by applying the mentoring basics of a Gentle Teaching framework to our practice (including therapeutic, educational or recreational processes within multi-sensory environments), learning and development is supported as it guides the mentor’s role.
Would you like to create opportunities that best align with and challenge a person’s social-emotional development, and connect these vital aspects with quality of life?
Would you like to know more about how to cultivate curiosity for the processes of discovery and learning (intrinsically motivated)?
A mentor recognizes the significance of identifying and building on what is meaningful and/or purposeful to the person.
Learn about how ‘our tools’ (hands, eyes, words, presence), speak a universal language about self-respect and human dignity. Learn these mentoring basics that cultivate feelings of companionship, where windows of self-awareness can expand and deepen one’s experience.
