Sadness and Solidarity after the Orlando Attack
We at Morningside Center are saddened by the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12. Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and friends, and to all those touched by the tragedy. We extend our love and solidarity to the LGBTQ community, which was apparently the target of this hateful attack.
We are grateful to all those who've stepped forward to help in the wake of the tragedy. We also applaud the courageous educators who every day work to counter bias and hatred and encourage caring and respect for all.

Learning from the Inside Out
“As adults, we often take control when it comes to “disciplinary” interventions: We tell kids how to fix things. We decide on consequences for their actions without too much listening or conversation. Yes, it’s quick, but it usually doesn’t allow us to get to the bottom of things.”
In her latest In the Circle blogpost, our trainer Marieke van Woerkom shares the story of how one student came to understand the impact of his bullying without any lectures from adults.
