THE CONNECT GROUP
Founded in 2011, by Dr. Lee-Anne Gray, THE CONNECT GROUP creates innovative educational solutions for communitites. In 2012, THE CONNECT GROUP was the premiere sponsor of TEDxStudioCityED and initiated a community-wide dialogue about self-regulation, technology, and education.
In 2014, THE CONNECT GROUP sponsored a Worldwide Empathy Toy Giveaway, connecting educators around the globe with free Empathy Toys. THE CONNECT GROUP School was a pilot program with students as co-founders and co-designers during the academic year of 2014-5. It was an adventure organized in response to Educational Trauma, and led to EmpathicEducation for a CompassionateNation.
EmpathicEducation for a CompassionateNation is an approach to healing Educational Trauma that includes:
Compassion & Self-Compassion
Currently, THE CONNECT GROUP serves the global community of students, educators, parents, and clinicians with empathic and compassionate practices that heal Educational Trauma.
