Level 1 Module-by-Module Breakdown
The PECT Level 1 training was a phenomenal experience. Our group of like-minded professionals very quickly came together as a collaborative support network for one another. The course walked us through four experiential workshops, each a foundational piece of positive psychology. Educators will come away with key well-being skills to embed within their classroom, as well as their personal life. The applications for this information is immeasurable. Thank you, Emiliya, Renee, and Tamara for a wonderful and truly valuable experience.
Sandy Brower, M. Ed., CAPP, PEC, CB3RT Positive Psychology Practitioner
After finishing the PEC program, I was pleased to see the PECT classes. I really wanted to be able to share what I had learned with parents and staff and I now have an important and practical toolbox to give 4 different workshops (of 1 hour, 2 hours, or 4 hours). This is so important for our community, particularly now. Thanks to the Center for offering this new course!
PECT Level 1 equipped me with an abundance of knowledge, resources, and skills that increased my confidence and motivation to pursue positive education. But, most importantly, PECT welcomed me into a community of changemakers and kindled connections that will last far beyond the time we spent together in training.
