Well-Being Wednesdays: Coping with Difficult Thoughts, Feelings and Experiences
Well-Being Wednesdays is a webinar series geared toward education professionals, administrators, and stakeholders, who are working together to create a culture of well-being that supports not only the students in their buildings, but the educators too! Each monthly session will outline each of the 10 ARC practice modules and follow a tell-show-do approach. Content will focus on one skill per session, outlining the skills, providing examples, and encouraging use of the skill. During the last session of the series, participants will be encouraged to identify and practice strategies that align with their personal and professional values, resulting in a “personal recipe for well-being.”
In this session, attendees will continue with learning about the distinction between pleasant and difficult emotions and experiences; specifically, about the importance of difficult thoughts and emotions to survival. They will also learn a specific technique for getting distance from these experiences, without avoiding them, so that they can better accept, cope, and ultimately move beyond them in moments where they are unhelpful.
