Resilient Teachers - Building Wellbeing and Resilience Strengths for Work and Play

Some people thrive in a crisis. Other people flourish in a state of wellbeing. Neither of these two states can be maintained consistently. We are constantly in a state of flux and change between the two, perhaps now more than ever. In this session we will share and discuss ways that we can take action, both independently and within our learning communities, to support individuals and teams as they navigate their way towards a heightened and more stable sense of wellbeing, through cultivating resilience skills. By identifying and analysing the strengths necessary for achieving wellbeing and behaving resiliently, we can collaborate to navigate the highs and lows in ways that promote mental, emotional, and physical health.

-Engage in storytelling to illustrate experiences of fluctuations in wellbeing and resilience over time
-Develop a shared, strengths-based vocabulary to discuss wellbeing and resilience
