July 16 - 20 Abbotsford, BC. Agriculture in the Classroom Summer Institute
Integrate important concepts related to food, the agriculture industry, and environmental sustainability into your classroom. Food is often taken for granted. Students and society often have limited understanding of the sources, processes, and issues related to food production. The British Columbia Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation has devoted itself to providing teachers with useful resources to help them integrate important concepts related to food, the agriculture industry and environmental sustainability into their classrooms. Agricultural literacy is located in three broad educational movements: place-based education, environmental/ecological education, and health literacy and healthy school initiatives. Systems thinking and sustainability are key concepts for consideration. This course explores practical ways to integrate concepts related to food production and consumption, food safety, agricultural issues, and sustainability across the curriculum at all grade levels. http://pdce.educ.ubc.ca/2018-agriculture

July 23 - 25 Banff, AB. 3 Day Intensive: The Science of Emotion
There is much focus today on emotion. Constructs like emotional intelligence, emotional self-regulation, emotional well-being and emotional social learning are being bandied about like never before. Emotion, long dismissed as a nuisance factor, is now confirmed to be at the core of development and well-being. Yet little is being taught about the nature of emotion or the implications for healing and treatment. New revelations about the nature of emotion have shed fresh light on the pivotal role of emotion in brain development, maturation, mental health, anxiety problems, behaviour problems, attention problems, addiction problems, resilience, recovery, and much more. In fact, most if not all the major diagnosis are found to have significant roots in the limbic system or emotional brain. When distilled to their essence, healing and adaptation are first and foremost emotional processes. In todays world, given the lack of supportive culture, an understanding of the nature of emotion is now foundational to finding our way through to personal health and well-being, whether this be for ourselves or to foster it in others. This keynote and follow-up seminar is powerful in the insight it provides as well as the changes it inspires. To make sense of emotion is to make sense of us all. In providing a window to the inner workings of the emotional brain, we also become informed as to how to harness the power of emotion for healing and recovery.
