Gentle Teaching: Building Human Relationships in Serving People
By: Globe Star, LLC & The QoL Institute, Inc.
GTI represents over 30 countries worldwide, advocating for human rights as defined by the UN, in the delivery of services for people with disabilities. The ongoing efforts of Dr. McCrovitz that advocate for these human rights was recognized by GTI at this year’s conference, presenting him with an award. His research and development of expanded programs at Globe Star contribute significantly to the worldwide works of Gentle Teaching.
GTI members converged in Greece with key educators, policymakers and stakeholders, hosted by the Board of Social Welfare Center of Central Macedonia. In attendance were the members of this board and President Sylvana Karasavidou, along with dignitaries from the Ministry of Labor, Social Insurance and Welfare.
Several days of intercultural dialogue and cross-cultural training in Gentle Teaching contributed to the improvement of Greece’s provision of services and strengthened global support and resources for them as they continue to develop human interaction dynamics that will establish greater significance for individuals and their service workers, fostering new relational frameworks that are mutually beneficial and enrich quality of life.
“We are committed to the practice of equanimity and compassion that is generated by the framework of Gentle Teaching, providing direct services for individuals with disabilities, achieving, with them, a quality of life that is cultivated by collaborative companionship, interdependence and community.” -Dr. Anthony M. McCrovitz
The educational capability of the Gentle Teaching framework engages, encompasses and guides a pedagogical format of building the relationship in a gentle learning environment, qualitatively affecting, in particular, the social-emotional aspect of one’s human inclination and ability to feel and grow
