Register here or Ask information


As everyone knows, teaching can be one of the most beautiful but also most challenging professions. Indeed, it doesn’t come as a big surprise that according to recent research, teachers experience more stress than most of other workers. At the same time, many students report the negative impact of stress on their mood, behavior and academic performances.

So, are there any strategies that educators can apply to manage stress and prevent its drawbacks?

This course has been designed precisely for teachers who want to gain knowledge about the most effective ways to deal with stress.

Through practical hands-on activities, participants will learn how to foster their own well-being and to maintain a favorable climate in their classroom. A particular section of the course will be dedicated to the effects of stress and anxiety on learning and how to help pupils to prevent and manage stress. During the course, there will be also the opportunity to focus on emotional intelligence and emotional regulation as a powerful skill to cope with stress.

Moreover, the training will provide direct experience of the most useful relaxation techniques to be used in the classroom and beyond.

Participants will be also provided with some of the most recent scientific evidence about the benefits of stress reduction programs, especially in school environments.
