Unpacking Addiction

By Bill Adair

A voicEd Radio Book Club featuring the very grounded thinking of BC-based educator Bill Adair. We're using Bill's book, The Emotionally Connected Classroom to explore the importance and the impact of attending to the emotional lives of the students in our classroom.

In this episode, Bill Adair helps us understand addictions in the lives of our children and students. He insists that the behaviours we see as contentious and disruptive point us to underlying issues related to emotional connectedness—or a lack of it!
