Taking Time To B.R.E.A.T.H.E.
Strategies for Strengthening Personal and Professional Resilience
Let’s face it. Life is full of change and uncertainty and is pretty stressful right now for most of us. When students and staff experience chronic stress, it can negatively impact their motivation, performance, and well-being, which can then affect the morale and climate of the home, the classroom, the staff room, the organization, and the community. There couldn’t be a more important time to focus on strengthening our well-being and resilience than right now. 
Participants in this engaging workshop series will walk away with simple yet powerful research-based practices from the fields of Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Emotional Intelligence, and Social Psychology. They can utilize these strategies with themselves, their teams, and their students to reduce stress and anxiety, improve attention and performance, and strengthen overall physical and psychological well-being. This transformational and experiential learning series provides an easy framework to give staff the understanding, motivation, and practices needed to work on becoming better humans, better educators, better leaders and better organizations.
