If you’ve ever wondered, “Where do I start?” after attending a webinar on trauma-informed librarianship, empathy, or serving diverse needs, these workshops are for you!
Join us for two sessions focused on closing the gap between those theories and the active practice of working with people. Each session will include an overview of theories, a demonstration of tools to and how to use them, time to engage in exercises and space to reflect and discuss our experiences.
Following Part 1, you'll be able to:
Identify the six parts of emotional intelligence
Define the concepts of beliefs, values and attitudes
Examine their own beliefs and recognize them in action
This series is based on EmmaKarin Eriksson’s well-attended “Uh Oh, People: Working With The Public” presentation at the Urban Librarians Unite Conference in September 2022. You do not need to have seen the original presentation in order to attend these sessions.
