Promoting Children and Teens’ Resilience, Confidence, Emotional Well-Being & Independence

Koru continues to take great pride in being a training clinic. To extend our training, we are offering free interactive seminars to educate medical professionals, allied mental health professionals, educators, and anyone interested in learning more on a variety of topics related to child and youth development and well-being.    

Our goal is to inspire that one small step forward in effectively supporting a child’s, teen’s, and family’s success. It’s the little changes that we can inspire that make a big difference in the quality of their lives.

Our free monthly virtual seminars are introductory level workshops; however, we also hold regular Lunch & Learns for schools, clinics, and other agencies on different topics relevant to their needs (and they’re a raving success!).  LEARN MORE…

        Relational Responding to Suicide Ideation and Self-Harm in Adolescents

        It might be alarming to learn that a young person is questioning the concept of life or death. On the other hand, we may also attribute expressions of suicide to underlying motivations of “seeking attention.” In this lunch n' learn, we will discuss ways of noticing, understanding, and responding to risk-related cues in adolescents. Bring along your questions for a brief Q&A at the end.

          Want to Inspire & Engage Your Employees?

          In addition to our monthly training seminars for the general community, our experts also conduct incredibly engaging and interactive Lunch & Learn webinars and Professional Development Workshops for schools, clinics, and agencies. These workshops can be one-off events, or part of an ongoing series on a topic important to you and your workplace/community.

          Together, we will decide on topics and schedule to address your needs and meet your goals. The presenters  are all highly experienced experts skilled in a variety of teaching techniques designed to engage all learning styles. 

          Each webinar or live workshop includes learning objectives that provide participants with the tools to implement to support children and teens immediately. Each session provides a one-page summary of the key learning points and session handouts, so participants can interact during the seminar and have the reminder when they want to apply the lessons later.

          Bringing People Together in Meaningful Ways

          Regularly scheduled Lunch and Learns are essential for ongoing professional development and also increase staff morale, commitment, and confidence. They’re also great in strengthening the community and work culture because they provide exciting opportunities to get everyone together and engage in different ways. These sessions combats silo-mentality by encouraging people to liaise more freely and often with each other than usual. These programs become integral parts of the organizational culture and, hopefully, an event that everyone looks forward to.

          We are flexible to meet your needs. Lunch & Learns and PD workshops can either take place on your worksite or virtually. No matter the size of your organization, we can tailor an engaging learning opportunity that’s right for your needs and budget.
