Here’s the information you’ve been waiting for! My next book study will be focused on Dr. Sara Langworthy‘s Bridging the Relationship Gap: Connecting with Children Facing Adversity book.
I realize that some of you may be new to the idea of an online book study. Don’t worry…there are no prerequisites for participation. Everyone is welcome and I’m so glad that you’ve stopped by! Do join us, won’t you? And please, spread the word! Share with a colleague, mentee, or friend. Consider hosting a staff/organization/state book club- read individually (chapters and online expert commentaries) then join together for discussion…sounds delightful!
It is my genuine hope that this book study feature intrigues individuals, serves as inexpensive professional development, provides access to resources otherwise not attainable, and encourages meaningful conversations. Learn. Love. Lead.
- How does this study work?
Participants will read the chosen book chapter and then visit the private learning community (paid participants only) for weekly guest expert commentary to further their thought-process, dialogue, etc. Follow along by using the Book Study Timeline (below). You may check in at your convenience each week. You are also invited to participate in the weekly dialogue by commenting below each post. Your experiences and perspective will help others on this journey. The profession needs your voice! Because this is an online study, the commentary will be available at a later date should you get behind. Please note that the Ask The Author feature is only guaranteed during the live book study dates.
