Course I: Introduction to Gentleness
This course is a two day introduction into the basics of Gentle Teaching. Gentle Teaching is based on a psychology of human interdependence. During the interactive training caregivers are asked to look at themselves and their spirit of gentleness. The training exercises assist the caregiver in identifying ways to express warmth and unconditional love toward the people in their lives, especially those supported who are the most disenfranchised from family and community life. Outcomes of this training are an understanding of and ability to teach others to feel safe, loved, loving and engaged through their own presence, words, touch and eyes; and to understand the concepts of community, companionship and connectedness.
Two days – six hours each. Attendance at both days of training is required for certification of participation.
