Topics include boundaries and problem ownership, stress and defensiveness, expectations and assumptions, student self-management, interpersonal dynamics and patterns that affect the school climate, building a positive social culture, dealing with biases and bullying, building emotonal intelligence, strengthening alliances with parents, and techniques for creating win-win solutions.
