The MEHRIT Centre (TMC) is an educational organization, established by Dr. Stuart Shanker in 2012 to work towards a vision of calm, alert children, youth and adults flourishing in physically and emotionally nurturing environments. Our mission is to ground learning and living in self-regulation. Decades of research have shown that self-regulation is the foundation of healthy human development; adaptive coping skills; positive parenting; learning; safe and caring schools; and vibrant communities. TMC works to translate this knowledge into practices that will benefit all children, parents, teachers and leaders in schools and communities.
When PBIS is implemented in the classroom, it may be referred to as classroom PBIS, positive classroom behavior support (PCBS), positive and proactive classroom management, or a variety of other synonyms. The same critical features (practices, data, and systems) come together to promote desired outcomes for students and educators in the classroom.
There is also a school implementation plan for PBIS.
Responsive Leadership operates within the scope of strengths and value based principles, providing a moral and ethical leadership foundation. The Right Use of Power is an ethical framework that helps leaders and practitioners identify and work with the inherent power dynamics that exist in organizations and professional relationships. There is inherent dynamics that accompany relationships where there is a role power difference–the potential for good, the responsibilities, the distortions, the vulnerability and risk for harm.
