Erika and Pepe are a force. Two years ago they led us through positive communication at our conference, and I still remember the energy in the room. We hope you will be able to make it to see them speak at Advocacy: Equitable Access to Education, our 4th annual conference held March 29th and 30th at the Civic Hotel in Surrey, BC.
Tickets available here:
Erika is an advocate and researcher, she holds a PhD in Law from the University of British Columbia.
Pepe is an organizational psychologist, coach, and career developer.
Erika and Pepe have two life teachers, coaches and bosses at home who continuously show them the pleasures and adventures of being parents. One of their kids has extra needs and, in their journey to find support for their family, they have made their mission of enjoying it. They recognize the importance of having company along the path and of taking in the life-lessons, give themselves the time to process them, and continue just one day at a time.
Workshop: Happy Mornings
You will learn:
-The impact that the first words and actions have in the rest of the day for the whole family.
-The importance of our own emotional regulation as parents for an effective advocacy.
-To develop your own plan to self-regulate in the mornings and your own “keep your cool” strategies.
Based on their own experience and determination to start the days happy, Erika and Pepe will take the participants into a self-exploration of what does happy mornings look like in their own home and how to make it happen. Research has showed the importance of parents´ self-regulation to support their children regulation, called co-regulation. The management of our emotions impacts our interactions with other people. Being mindful and intentional about our emotions can have positive effects in our advocacy efforts. Erika and Pepe will guide the participants in developing a plan with their own strategies to achieve their own happy mornings.
