In international schools, we traditionally think of 'transition' as the physical movement of students and staff from one place to another. But what happened when the whole world entered into a massive transition cycle with no warning or time to properly prepare? What happens now? What stage are we at globally? And how does all of that interact with the still ongoing cycles of physical transition many of our families and students experience? How can we help them (and ourselves) adjust and develop effective strategies for better navigating these uncharted--and complicated--waters? Join us as we explore these important questions and topic.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Re-visiting traditional stages of physical transition and seeing how they apply to other types of life transitions. 
  • Understanding the increasingly complex level of transition students are going through at any given time. 
  • Considering positive strategies for dealing well with these new realities in the lives of our international communities.

Register Here  for the Counselors as Allies Webinar

Our Counselors as Allies series of chats will continue with a chance to discuss our comments and feedback after screening the Scilla Andreen new film, Race.  The majority of our time together, we will have the opportunity to share our insights we learned on our DEIJ Journey, professionally and personally.  This is an excellent opportunity for counselors to share what DEIJ initiatives their schools have implemented and also an opportunity for counselors who are at the beginning of their journey to gather tips and advice from others.   We look forward to your participation as our conversations continue.
