We want to continue to build our Network and we need your help!
We started the Centre for Relationship-Based Education on March 5, 2019. In that short time, we have grown to over 300 members and counting. We are all about relationships. The more members, the more relationships, and the more we can make a real difference.
We hope to have 1000 members by the end of December 2019! So, we have started a membership drive. Until the end of June 2019, all members will have a chance to win a free copy of either The Third Path or Pushing the Limits. We are giving away 10 copies of each book!
Also, any member who refers a new member will be placed into a separate draw to win one of our two books. For each member you refer, your name goes into the draw. More referrals, more chances to win.
The Centre for Relationship-Based Education is your voice for what matters most in education. Let’s work together to make a difference!
Relationships Make the Difference
THE CENTRE FOR RELATIONSHIP-BASED EDUCATION
We are non-profit group of educators, researchers, parents, and community partners dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth through strengthening their relationships. We view relationships as the critical vehicle through which all learning and growth occur. Our goal is to support children and youth to succeed in school and in life through the promotion of positive, genuine, intentional, and responsive relationships in the classroom and beyond.
YOU ARE THE STRATEGY
What is the common denominator underpinning both academic achievement and student well-being? Relationships. When students encounter caring and consistent relationships with adults, they are much more likely to succeed—not just academically, but in regard to their mental health and well-being too. Relationships make the difference and it all starts with you!
Research shows that stronger teacher-student relationships leads to:
Increased pursuit of social goals
Increased prosocial behaviour
Development of social/emotional skills
Enhanced emotional well-being
Increased positive self-concept
Willingness to seek help
Greater internalization of adult values and goals
Improved sense of relatedness and belonging
Buffering of stress and anxiety
Greater overall protection against risk
