Ralph Rothacker: Change Leadership in Alternative Settings

What would draw you out of retirement to head a boarding school for  challenged/challenging adolescent girls? Come be inspired by Ralph’s story as principal  of St. Anne’s, a residential and day school considered by many to be “the last stop”  before incarceration. He will describe for us how trauma-informing St. Anne’s has come  about and what he sees as his role in creating this new school climate and  approach. Ralph’s passion for the young women this school serves and for his staff  shines through. He will offer several tools and insights. Listen carefully as he describes  how they use Q-tips as a reminder for the staff to stay regulated and open to  relationship.
