Education Professor Presents on Power of Constructive Conversations with PK-12 Students
Susan P. Schaming, associate professor and director of graduate counselor education program, presented at the annual conference of the PA School Counselor Association on December 9 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Her presentation: Hope for the future begins today: Using constructive conversations in PK-12 schools offered techniques for school counselors to respond to the imperative of supporting PK—12 students’ awareness, reflection, response, and reaction to personal biases. Schaming purports that left unaddressed, the discrimination of marginalized individuals and groups will subsist in our schools and communities. Kim’s Constructive Conversations model was emphasized as a tool to help students to manage conflict, promote healing, and find their voice.
