About the Series:
At WellEducator, an educator is anyone who is professionally invested in helping students find their passions, raise their voices, and build their skills to support future generations in reaching their fullest potential.
NWPBIS is partnering with Dr. Renee VanNorman of WellEducator, LLC to bring you the most up to date research, suggestions, and exemplars on how to build wellness, and respond to life's challenging moments (in and out of the classroom) with self-compassion.
Educator stress and burnout has been reported as higher than any other profession (Stoeber, J., & Rennert, D, 2008). Stressors include lack of social/emotional training, ineffective interpersonal relationships, vicarious trauma, and unrealistic systems’ requirements. Stressors impact wellbeing and availability to effectively build high quality relationships with students. Educators inherently deserve support in nurturing their holistic wellbeing.
During these workshops participants will practice skills to decrease stressors on mind/body systems to stay connected to the wonders and curiosities of teaching using evidence-based mindfulness practices, radical acceptance and values-driven goal setting.
