A Culture Shift: Our Emotions as a Broken Compass
Led by: Keith McCurdy, CEO of Total Life Counseling
How did we get here? And where do we go from here?
There’s no doubt culture has shifted. Emotions rule. In fact, they have become our compass for life. We seem to have forgotten the balance of truth, logic, and reason. How has this culture shift affected our schools and the families we serve? Are we feeling weary? Is it any wonder students lack the know-how to overcome anxiety and depression as they face the onslaught of social media and gender identity influences?
Geared toward both teachers and leaders, this day-long session with discussion will provide practical understanding and approaches to the ever-changing needs of our students and parents. Particularly for logic and rhetoric school teachers and administrators, this session will equip you to successfully handle the thorny and complex cultural issues you face everyday with your students. And increasingly for grammar school teachers and leaders, come learn how you can equip your students to face the culture as they grow. Leave with a fresh perspective and hope for your weariness.
Keith McCurdy’s three decades of experience and expertise in both the fields of mental health and consulting with classical Christian schools combine to provide valuable insights and practical solutions as we engage our students and families.
