Date & Time: 2/24/2022 from 3-4 pm
Audience: Teachers, Teacher Mentors, Instructional Leaders, Charter School Leaders
Speakers: Dr. Kathryn Kennedy from Wellness for Educators
Description: Mental health and wellbeing has become a vital focus area for educators to not only support their caregivers and students but also themselves. In this session, Kathryn of Wellness for Educators will pull from somatic psychology and neuroscience research to contextualize the intersection where learning meets trauma and prolonged stress and why it's critically important for educators to understand what happens at this convergence. It is vital for us as educators to work through and with our own trauma, secondary traumatic stress, and emotions so that we can heal and be there first for ourselves and then for our students and colleagues. Mind-body approaches to healing trauma, prolonged stress, and burnout will be shared as well.
