Developing resilience through teaching resilience

Teachers and students are both suffering in our present post-pandemic world. Helplessness and hopelessness are pervasive and can lead to vulnerability and depression. To combat these forces we need to take effective action and the best action as teachers is to directly teach good research-based resilience building strategies to all our students and in doing so gain the benefit of practicing what we teach. This session will demonstrate several practical classroom strategies and give attendees access to resources for helping students and helping themselves to generate more ‘inner strength’ and move confidently and positively into our shared future.
