Aim of the workshop:

Teacher Resilience Workshop
Professional demands and stress have a negative impact on teachers’ personal and professional lives. This workshop will focus on building resilience in adults through strength-based practices and will introduce participants to specific resilience-building skills and cognitive behavioural strategies that can help make a significant difference in the health, wellness and resilience of adults who work in schools.
Why provide this training for teachers?
With the emphasis in schools on student care and early intervention, teachers are increasingly involved in the intervention of young people’s psychosocial health, as well as being first responders in student crises. Teachers identify that they find this work rewarding and strive to maintain their compassion and care. Teachers are also often witness to stories of distress and trauma, and experience burn out in large numbers, yet provided little training or professional development in how to care for themselves.
