Webinar: Interrupt unhelpful habits through mindfulness practices that work

Educator stress and burnout has been reported as higher than any other profession (Stoeber, J., & Rennert, D, 2008). Stressors include lack of social/emotional training, ineffective interpersonal relationships, vicarious trauma, and unrealistic systems’ requirements. Stressors impact wellbeing and availability to effectively build high quality relationships with students. Educators inherently deserve support in nurturing their holistic wellbeing.

During these workshops participants will practice skills to decrease stressors on mind/body systems to stay connected to the wonders and curiosities of teaching using evidence-based mindfulness practices, radical acceptance and values-driven goal setting.

  • Learn the benefits of mindfulness practices for educators.
  • Understand how unhelpful habits are formed and how mindful practices can help interrupt a habit loop.
  • Create a Committed Action Plan.
  • Learn and experience several mindfulness/meditation exercises.
