You can create a classroom and school environment where students feel connected and encouraged. Imagine a room filled with young people who are engaged in learning, contribute to problem-solving, and help build their own community.

Together, we will explore how to:

  • Create an environment where students are engaged in learning, contribute to problem-solving, and help build their own community
  • Set-up and consistently hold effective problem-solving class meetings/circles
  • Understand behavior as communication so that you can respond to challenging behavior
  • Apply a trauma-responsive lens so that you can better lead in the classroom
  • Strengthen your own self-regulation and co-regulation skills
  • Help children with the social-emotional support and skill-building that they urgently need

Rooted Relationships brings together the most helpful and practical tools from: 

  • brain science research
  • culturally-responsive teaching
  • trauma and attachment theory
  • social emotional learning (SEL)
  • and Positive Discipline

You'll access resources and learn tools that will make an immediate difference in your classroom and school, including the BELONG Partners Pacing Guide.

Our 200+ page Pacing Guide is an essential resource to support implementation of the BELONG Partners approach. It includes:

  • A calendar that outlines a month-by-month focus on various SEL topics, relationship development and adult mindsets
  • Resources for facilitating systems change and restorative discipline
  • Activities that foster student skills in effective problem-solving class meetings

The course is appropriate for teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals, and youth development program providers.

Washington State clock hours are available at no cost.
