Incorporating ethics and service-learning into our professional practice can provide students with a sense of purpose and engagement in their own education.

Incorporating ethics and service-learning into our professional practice can provide students with a sense of purpose and engagement in their own education. It can make our own work as mental health professionals more meaningful as well. These seminar sessions will include interactive discussion of dilemmas, thought experiments and theory, as well as collaborative exercises in developing programs in schools.  We will learn concepts and techniques for both classroom/workshop use, and for enriching existing programs and creating new initiatives.

Part of the The Role of Schools in Fostering Resilience in Children: A Guide for School Mental Health Professionals Seminar Series.
