Feeling Seen

Reconnecting in a Disconnected World

Feeling Seen: Reconnecting Relationships in a Disconnected World examines how and why humans are so disconnected right now, worse than we have been in the history of the free world. Dr. Jody looks at how we got so lost, and all the soul-ripping contributions to a disconnected world. Then, Jody deciphers with the reader a road map back home, back to each other, to discover how the simple act of acknowledgment can change the world. And then she unpacks the hardest part: when we (inevitably) lose our way again.

Kids These Days

A Game Plan For (Re)Connecting With Those We Teach, Lead, & Love

This book is for the educators: our teachers, bus drivers, administrators, educational assistants, librarians, administrative assistants, and custodians. And anyone who leads, loves, and supports them. If that’s you, I am so grateful you are here.

Teachers These Days

Stories & Strategies for Reconnection

Dr. Jody Carrington and Laurie McIntosh bring together theory and practice, weaving the science of human development with real-life stories and tangible strategies told by those most qualified to share them—our teachers. This book is for those who need a place to land when they want to be reminded that, simply by the choice of their profession, they are a powerful force in shaping our world.

Teachers These Days is FILLED with heartfelt happies and heartbreaking hurts. I connect with the theory-into-practice way that it is set up and I appreciated the voices of the others in their raw, poignant stories.

Oh, Sweet Mother. THIS. THIS IS WHAT TEACHERS NEED RIGHT NOW. TO READ THESE WORDS. Thank you. We love the stories. It honours the work and experience of educators while providing a familiar context to all teachers. The section on grief is captivating and visceral and beautiful. Thank you, both, so much for sharing this work, your words and your wisdom.

When I first heard about Dr. Jody Carrington's new book, Kids These Days, I couldn't wait to read it. Once I opened the cover to begin, I couldn't stop reading this heartfelt informed celebration of children and those who love them. This beautiful book is wrapped in deep regard for children and all of those who love and care for them. As an educator, I believe that this book must be in the hands of all teachers. Written with such respect for our profession, Jody offers the research and tools that will help us to translate HOPE into action that will honor our children.

Without a doubt the best book a teacher can read. I enjoyed every minute of this book and I am suggesting it to every teacher I know. This author recognizes what it means to have kids in our classrooms every day and the struggles and exhaustion we face. I love that she says the work we do is "holy work" because indeed teachers matter and they have a huge impact. Thank you Dr Carrington for writing this book. I shook my head in agreement through EVERY passage. I highly recommend this book to all teachers, parents and caregivers of children
