Resilience and Well-being Strengths for Teachers

Description

Concept by Natalie Croome

Some people thrive in a crisis. Other people flourish in a state of well-being. Neither of these two states can be maintained consistently and they vary at any given time, in different aspects of our lives. We are constantly in a state of flux and change, perhaps now more than ever.

Resilience can be described as a set of strengths we can employ to drive us towards achieving a balance between the highs and the lows that we experience, in life and at work. Together with well-being, it allows us to make teaching and learning sustainable and meaningful during times of change, crisis, and challenge.

While we cannot maintain a constant level of well-being, we can lead students and teachers to recognize when a state of well-being exists, and when drawing on resilience strengths is useful or necessary.

In this course, we will share and discuss the importance of teachers’ understanding and taking responsibility to develop their resilience strengths to help them navigate their way towards a heightened and more stable state of well-being.

Through exploring strategies such as emotional management, a positive mindset, changing the internal narrative, and building empathy and compassion, participants will discover how to rebuild resilience and render their life more enjoyable and manageable.

By identifying and analyzing the strengths necessary for achieving well-being and behaving resiliently, we will collaborate to find ways of navigating emotional highs and lows in ways that promote mental, emotional, and physical health.

Reviews about this course

Aurelie Castersfrom Belgium
5 stars

The safe, open space where we can talk about our deeper emotions without being judged is amazing. We also got individual feedback to work with these struggles.

The course in Nice is definitely worth participating in. The course leader is a well-qualified and empathetic trainer who makes the course very enjoyable and useful. I am sure that I will use most of it in my everyday work from now on. Besides, Nice is a place that is worth visiting. Its narrow streets, its vibrant lifestyle, cafés, and shops, not to mention the spectacular view of the sea make this place special - Go and try it, you won't regret it.
