Cultivating Seeds of Self Compassion
Friday, December 13, 2019, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST
CoLab 18 in Nova Place
Self-compassion and self-care are necessary components of our overall well-being, and important skills to nurture in order to create more compassionate out-of-school time cultures. As educators and caregivers, we spend much of our time caring for others, but what about ourselves? When grounded in our own sense of care, we’re better able to build the emotional capacity to extend that compassion to others.
In this workshop, we’ll discuss components of social emotional learning, examine the science of self-compassion, engage in compassion based mindfulness practices, and discuss the importance of a supportive community for ourselves and others. Join APOST and our guest presenter, Tina Raspanti, for this intriguing and appropriate topic heading into the holiday season!

On Friday, January 10th, APOST will be hosting our first CPR, AED, and First Aid Training of the year! This training will be facilitated by CPR Simplicity. CPR Simplicity is a family owned business which “believes that through widespread AED deployment and training as many people as possible on how to do CPR and use an AED, there is no limit to how many lives can be saved.” This training is perfect for front line staff who will be working most closely with youth. Certification will be available upon completion of the training. (Certification will be sent via email. Please make sure to register with the email you’d like to receive your certificate at.) Due to the high demand for this type of training, we ask that you limit registration for your organization. QC Members may send no more than 3 attendees. Non-Members may send no more than 2 attendees. Come get your certification before second semester programming picks up! We hope to see you there!
