General Description

We all have a tipping point, what is yours? Most days we are fine until that moment when it all gets too much and we burst into the staffroom in tears. Know yours or others tipping point and learn simple ways to manage emotions with science from Barbara Fredrikson, HeartMath, Goleman and more.

1. Hope versus despair
We begin by defining emotional intelligence with Mayer and Salovey, then explore the ground-breaking work of Barbara Fredrickson where positive emotions broaden our perspective and build resilience. We draw link between stress and anxiety on the brain and explain how positive emotions can serve as the markers for hope and flourishing.

2. Identifying your tipping point
Teaching is an emotional vocation where we give, connect, share and give some more. While it is rewarding it can also be thankless where change is endless and resilience waivering. Research in the area of teacher stress and burnout suggests we need specific tools in social and emotional competence to become more resilient to the demands of the job. In using Daniel Goleman’s 5 elements of Emotional Intelligence, we can begin planning ways to identify and manage our emotions with the goal of forming more positive relationships with others.

3. Building a better future
In this last session we experience and share a range of evidence based strategies from organisations such as HeartMath, 6Seconds and more that merge theory into practice. All tools and resources are transferable to the classroom where we map them to CASEL and the Personal and Social and Capabilities framework within the national Curriculum.
