Sessions

Stress and Challenge

2 hours

In this session we go through an overview of the day. Participants are encouraged to set a learning intention for the workshop with outcomes of what they would like to walk away with. We then begin by discussing the common stressors for teachers and the everyday challenges they face. These are collectively brainstormed and categorized into areas of influence and areas of concern. We then explore the concept of wellbeing, what it is and how we define it using current research stemming from Positive Psychology and more specifically Positive Education

Reframing with Communication

2 hours

In this session we explore the concept of perspective and the coaching principle of reframing with questions. We explore the theory of coaching psychology and practice questioning frameworks that have proven results in both business and education such as Whitmores GROW Model. Here we also play some interactive games that highlight key concepts in communication and enable participant to become active learners of their own reflection.

Putting it together with PERMA

In this final session, we explore the foundations of Positive Psychology by looking at character strengths and how to use them in the classroom. We finish by looking at what is working well and make a plan for how we can best support our own wellbeing at work based on Seligmans PERMA model of wellbeing. We conclude the day by sharing our action plans for either supporting ourselves, other staff or planning for student wellbeing.

Engaging, well-informed & useful. Well being of teachers needs to be dealt with before student well being can be effectively dealt with.

A lot better than I thought it would be! Daniela knows her stuff and she presented the content in a logical and relatable manner. Being an ex-teacher helped Daniela link the content to teaching and what we do on a day-to-day basis.
