General Description

With a global pandemic teaching has changed. Now more than ever teachers need strategies to support their wellbeing.

You are probably here because you love teaching but are tired, exhausted and feel overwhelmed with the changing demands on teachers. Now more than ever we need to empower ourselves with simple yet practical strategies to strengthen our wellbeing.

This course was developed at the time of the Covid-19 global pandemic, out of a need to help teachers act as first-responders to their own wellbeing, however the strategies are relevant for any time.

As educators, we have all done hours of First Aid Training in how to respond to critical incidents at school. In this course, we use the DRABC acronym to learn practical strategies to respond to our own wellbeing NOW!

This course is for any teacher who works in a school, whether that be early childhood, primary, secondary or tertiary.

Whether you are a beginning teacher or an experienced leader in a school, the strategies here are applicable to all.

Please also know the course has been designed to take 5 hrs with some modules being longer or shorter than others.

I have also included a number of optional readings, research papers and links for further study.

Each module unpacks specific strategies teachers can use to act as first-responder to their wellbeing. All strategies are evidence-based with a foundation in Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Emotional Intelligence research.
The modules include;
D – Divergent Thinking
R – Rest your mind
A – Awareness of self
B – Believe you are enough
C – Celebrate daily

Perfect for me as I venture back to school with so many unknowns.
The banter between Myles and Daniela was comprehensive and sounded just the way teachers should be communicating. It was a reassuring webinar. Thank you I found this course reassuring and a comfort as I dive into a new year.
