Nurturing the Inner Lives of Children and Adults 
Linda Lantieri, MA, is an expert on Social and Emotional Learning, and one of the founding board members of the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL). Currently she serves as the Director of The Inner Resilience Program whose mission is to cultivate the inner lives of students, teachers and schools by integrating social and emotional learning with contemplative practice.
Working with principles derived from brain research, Linda explores how adults can help children manage the pressures they face. With some form of regular contemplative practice, social and emotional capacity is strengthened. These practices help children to manage emotions, show more compassion and further develop their ability to be still.
