Brave Teaching: Bringing Emotional-Resiliency Skills from the Wilderness to the Classroom

by Krissy Pozatek and Sarah Love



In this companion volume to Brave Parenting, Krissy Pozatek, author of The Parallel Process, employs the skills she learned in wilderness therapy to show how teachers can build emotional resilience and regulation and mindfulness in their students, as well as nurture their abilities to problem-solve and develop life skills.

With examples drawn from the practical experiences of Sarah Love, a fourth-grade teacher, Krissy demonstrates how educators can create a dynamic and engaged student body, communicate effectively, and manage emotions and expectations in contemporary classrooms, schools, and in parent–teacher relationships.
