By providing structure while also supporting and attuning
to the authentic needs (Winnicott, 1967; Niec & Russ, 2002) of their students, effective teachers establish environments of safety and trust, as opposed to merely environments of compliance.
The peace ["Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give to you" (John, 14:27)], and harmony ["A new attuning
of the elements occurred," (Wisdom, 19:19)] proclaimed in Christ, through Him, and with Him, reveal the truth of a cosmic Kosmos, ("order," "universe") metanoia: the authentic conversion of the heart of all creation.
Similarly, Winnicott (1965) reported that attuning to the internal experience of another provides for the development of trust and autonomy.
By attuning to the needs and perspectives of their students, effective teachers are able to foster and establish an environment of trust, as opposed to environments of compliance.
