Sessions

1. Stop chasing your tail

2 hours

I don’t need to tell you that teaching is stressful. From admin to parents, meetings and students who lack motivation, you are not alone. Together we unpack the stressors of teaching and learn the impact this is having on our body and our brain. We explore tools in cognitive behaviour therapy to better understand the thought-feeling loop as a way to define wellbeing and manage the dynamic nature of every day teaching. We learn how to get off the hedonic treadmill and take great control of doing what we love – teaching.

2. It’s time to celebrate you

2 hours

As teachers we are encouraged to reflect on our practice, but when do we really have the time? Instead of looking at what isn’t working we take a strengths-based approach to review what is working well, identify our character strengths, and reflect on what is most meaningful to us as educators. Through play and experience, we learn to live the tenants of Positive Psychology (feel good and do good) before we review case studies of what is working in other schools as examples of best practice.

3. Building a wellbeing toolkit

1 hour

Given student wellbeing begins with teacher wellbeing, we use the NSW DEC Wellbeing Framework to identify how teachers can connect, succeed and thrive both in their classroom and in the staffroom. We then map this to Seligman’s PERMA model to form an evidence-based teacher wellbeing framework for either individuals or whole school policy. Participants leave with evidence based strategies to better support teacher wellbeing that is more than the annual BBQ or Friday drinks.
