Presented by: Jane Langley
Event Information: 6 PD Hours
A student’s ability to be resilient is often dependent on them having the mindset, skills and relationships to work through the normal stresses of life. For many of our students though these are skills and resources that they do not have. Building a student’s ability to be resilient is crucial to reducing the likelihood of them developing mental health problems and/or drug and alcohol related issues as an adult. This can often be a challenging and overwhelming task for classroom teachers.
In this workshop educators will explore how to develop safe learning spaces where students are connected to their teachers, peers and school. It will also explore simple techniques and strategies for teaching student how to be resilient in their approach to work, relationships, school and life.
