ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
Compassion is how you respond in the face of someone’s suffering, including your own. Educators can experience compassion fatigue as they care for students experiencing difficulties expressing their emotions in healthy and productive ways. Compassion fatigue can affect school communities and cause friction between staff and students, amongst colleagues and between staff and administration. Building compassion takes practice and can lead to many positive benefits including stronger communities. In this webinar, participants will learn the benefits of a practice of mindful compassion on wellbeing, how to practice mindful compassion to cultivate strong school communities, and how to practice self-compassion to enhance resiliency and combat compassion fatigue.
- Identify the benefits of a practice of mindful compassion and self-compassion on the wellbeing of self and school community.
- Learn 3 self-compassion exercises to enhance personal wellbeing.
- Learn 3 mindful compassion exercises to build a strong, compassionate school community.
ABOUT THE 4-PART SERIES:
At WellEducator we wholeheartedly believe that nurturing others begins by nurturing oneself. This Educator Wellness Series is designed for you, the educator, to take a break from what can feel like an overwhelming hustle to prepare, deliver, and support your students and focus on your own wellbeing. We also believe EVERY educator is doing the best they can, and there is always room for growth and development.
We designed this 4 Session Series to support you in tapping into your resiliency skills, increasing your self-compassion, creating self-care routines, building a practice of gratitude and appreciation and celebrating - even those small successes - to support your wellbeing. We know you are showing up for your students, that’s what you do! It’s time to take a time out just for you!
