  • LSCI Group Curriculum



    The eight-session LSCI Group Curriculum teaches child and adolescent students and clients the basic concepts of Life Space Crisis Intervention. This social-emotional learning program helps young people learn about self-defeating behaviors and how to avoid falling into these troublesome patterns.

    The LSCI Group Curriculum is also a helpful tool for LSCI-certified professionals trying to integrate LSCI into their classrooms and therapeutic milieus and also as a tool for counselors looking for easy-to-use, engaging group activities to run with young people.

    The LSCI Group Curriculum Facilitator’s Guide walks group leaders step-by-step and session-by-session through eight unique aspects of LSCI for Kids. Facilitators may use either the Group Handbook for Children or the Group Handbook for Youth, depending on the writing and comprehension abilities of participants.

    • The Group Handbook for Children is designed for participants with more limited capacity for self-reflection and/or writing skills.
    • The Group Handbook for Youth is designed for participants who are able to engage in some self-reflection and independent writing.

  • Unwritten, The Story of a Living System: A Pathway to Enlivening and Transforming Education

    Authors: Lori Desautels & Michael McKnight

    There's never been a more chaotic and tenuous time in our nation's educational story. Learning is the most natural thing human beings do. Yet, it seems the “harder” we work in schools helping our students to acquire the learning they need, the academic performances stay stagnant or lessen. Schools are not machines. Schools are a network of human beings who feel, think, behave, and function within a human system that is alive and never static. Schools are living systems! This system is wired to thrive, even through difficult times – Lori and Michael believe that we can begin to create wholeness and connection within our schools mindfully and by design. We can create places where all children thrive.

  • The Hopeful Brain: NeuroRelational Repair for Disconnected Children & Youth

    Authors: Paul Baker, Meredith White-McMahon

    Over the past two decades, significant advancement has been made in
    understanding the role the brain plays in human behavior. Along with
    this new and exciting information emerges a responsibility for
    therapeutic professionals to have a solid understanding of the “brain
    basics” needed to support the lives of troubled children and youth. The
    Hopeful Brain authors provide a common-sense look at modern neuroscience
    and its application to positive youth development, psychology and
    educational support. Baker and White-McMahon take on the often daunting
    world of complex neuroscience and provide readers with practical
    strategies that are easy to use and apply across a variety of settings.

    This book explores the importance of using strength-based interventions and
    creating structured opportunities to “reimburse” troubled children and
    youth with positive experiences that teach and transform.

  • The Minded Brain: An Educational Curriculum to Enhance Social, Emotional and Cultural Experiences, Elementary Version

    Authors: Dr. Cynthia Ford & Dr. Paul Baker

    According to Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that can enhance personal development, establish satisfying interpersonal relationships, and lead to effective and ethical work and productivity. These include the competencies to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show caring and concern for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
    Research indicates that there is a direct link between social and emotional skills and academic learning. According to CASEL many risky behaviors can be prevented or reduced when social and emotional learning is integrated into the curriculum. This is best done through explicit instruction and through student-centered learning approaches that help students engage in the learning process and develop analytical, communication, and collaborative skills.

    The Minded Brain is a “hands-on” educational curriculum designed to enhance the social, emotional and cultural needs of students through target experiential learning activities. It uses targeted instructional techniques to support social emotional learning within an easy-to-use NeuroRelational framework.
