Teaching can be one of the most beautiful but also the most challenging professions. As recent research has shown, teachers actually experience more stress than most of other workers. At the same time, also students often report the negative impact of stress on their mood, behavior and academic performances. But is there anything that educators can do manage stress and prevent its drawbacks?
This course has been designed precisely to provide teachers with effective tools and strategies to deal with their own and their students’ 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.

Participants will be introduced to the effects of stress and anxiety on learning, and how to help pupils to prevent and manage stress.

Participants will also have the opportunity to focus on emotional intelligence and emotional regulation as a powerful skill to cope with stress.
