SSD Safety Conference

During this time of transitions and challenges, empathy for others and ourselves is even more important than ever. Social worker Jessica Price has been incorporating empathy awareness into her elementary guidance plan for years. In doing so, she began to realize how much of what she was working on with young people in regards to empathy was relevant for all ages. Learning to embrace empathy and share our stories in a way that others can connect to is a lifelong objective. With so many new obstacles in our way to connect with others in spite of social distancing, this hour will be focused on reconnection during COVID. We can show kindness amidst the masks, stress, and frustrations that we are facing today.

This conference is open to everyone, so feel free to spread the word.
