Dr. Julie Gold brings a plethora of experience from over two decades of public education service and private practice to TCL. She began her career as a teacher/counselor at special education residential schools for adolescents with emotional and behavioral disabilities, where she was frequently faced with the question: What comes first –Depression and Anxiety or failure to acquire literacy and math skills? This question drove her inquiry into her graduate studies in School and Counseling Psychology. Dr. Gold was fortunate to have the opportunity to obtain her Masters and Educational Specialist Degree (School Psychology) in a rural setting at Indiana State University and her Doctoral Degree (School Psychology) in an urban community at Northeastern University. Here, she learned that a myriad of risk factors exist that influence student success.

Dr. Gold maintains the premise that Prevention and Intervention are the keys to student achievement and wellness. She has worked tirelessly to provide TIER 1, 2, and 3 services for students at-risk for social, emotional, and learning challenges. Through neuropsychological, formative, and behavioral assessment, consultation, coaching, training, counseling, and on-going reflection, Dr. Gold has learned that equipping teachers, families, administrators, and mental health staff with instructional strategies and support ultimately meets the needs of students in public schools. 

In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and two sons, enjoying Northern New Hampshire’s outdoors - boating, paddle boarding, hiking, and picking blueberries. She also enjoys going to the gym, cooking, baking, and writing. 

This course is designed to give educators at all levels an overview of recent research on mindfulness practices and to provide step by step guidance on how to integrate these practices into the classroom.

With the soaring concerns of mental health issues, students need to be supported more than ever with their social and emotional development. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) involves teaching and modeling five lifelong skills: self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, social awareness, and relationship skills. In this course, participants will learn how to weave SEL into the curriculum, which has been shown to increase academic outcomes and promote overall positive mental health among students. Participants will also explore strategies to support and enhance their own mental health and well-being.
