General Description

Teaching is both stressful and rewarding, with high levels of accountability and high demands on teachers' time. With endless tasks to complete, personal energy can take a battering as teachers strive to meet the needs of students, parents and colleagues. In this session, we explore common challenges for staff in schools with practical ways to merge theory into practice. Using the science of Positive Psychology, we share evidence-based strategies for teachers to recharge and take control of their wellbeing.

This session can be conducted in two ways;
- “At my School” - a Face to Face workshop at your school with all staff
- “Online” – participate in a self-paced course of a pre-recorded workshop

In this program we;
• Discuss the global stressors for educators and their impact on wellbeing.
• Unpack the 5 dimensions of wellbeing and their relevance for school staff
• Practice cognitive reframing as we discuss the importance of perspective
• Form positive connections with strength-based conversations
• Explain the Hedonic and Eudemonic lens of teacher wellbeing
• Reflect on our wellbeing using Martin Seligman’s five pillars known as PERMA
• Consider next steps as we plan our personal wellbeing plan

Sessions

The Stress and Wellbeing relationship

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.

Stop, Connect, Share

2 hours

In this session we explore strategies to manage wellbeing. We all want more time, but the secret is to manage energy not time. Cognitive load is high and mindfulness gives us effective ways to create better work-life balance. As teachers we are encouraged to reflect on our practice, but what questions do we ask and in what time? Our negativity bias often has us looking for what isn’t working but what happens when we use a strengths based lens?

Developing a personal wellbeing plan

1 hour

In the final session, we use the science of wellbeing known as Positive Psychology map strategies to Seligman’s PERMA. Through the lens of helping teachers “feel good” and “do good”, people have an opportunity to plan their personal wellbeing plan.

It was pretty good but I was wanting a bit more of a focus on the practical I didn’t really care about the theory and was more interested in teacher wellbeing than student at this stage.
