Stress Management and Recognition: Key Strategies for Teachers

Description

Concept by Federica Di Bartolomeo

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 other workers. At the same time, students also often report the negative impact of stress on their mood, behavior, and academic performance.

But is there anything that educators can do to 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 maintain a favorable climate in their classroom.

The course presents the most recent scientific evidence about the benefits of stress-reduction programs, especially in school environments. Participants will be introduced to the effects of stress and anxiety on learning, and how to help pupils to prevent and manage stress.

The course will hence provide a direct experience of the most useful relaxation techniques to be used in the classroom and beyond. Participants will also have the opportunity to focus on emotional intelligence and emotional regulation as powerful skills to cope with stress.

By the end of the course, participants will have gained knowledge about the most effective ways to deal with stress, and they will be able to apply research-based strategies in their school community.
