Hun Hosts Stanley King Counseling Institute for Faculty Workshops
 
Hun School faculty returned to campus last week to engage in planning and professional development. On Wednesday, Faculty Workshops focused on tools and techniques for strong faculty and student relationships, a cornerstone of The Hun School community. Several sessions were conducted by the Stanley H. King Counseling Institute, an organization that specializes in the development of listening and counseling skills among educators.
 
Dean of Students Bethany Loffredo, who attended a week-long King Institute seminar in Colorado Springs this summer, called her work with the Institute a “very valuable experience.”
 
“We learned so much about ourselves and about making human connections,” she said. “Teaching faculty how to deeply listen to their students, and everyone, is a great skill for building stronger, more authentic relationships and community.”
 
Workshops included a dyad listening exercise and role play demonstrations. Ms. Loffredo joined
Institute Director Ellen Porter Honnet and Associate Director Paula Chu as a workshop facilitator.
 
“Ultimately, we want to be here for our students in the most effective way possible,” continued Ms. Loffredo. “Working with the King Institute gave us an opportunity to focus on that objective and become more empathetic role models.”
