Self-Care/Mental Health for Educators


SKU: 3256 Categories: , ,


Mindfulness/stress management strategies and interventions can help teachers develop coping and awareness skills to reduce anxiety, depression, and improved health. Recent research from the Curry School of Education, U of VA?suggest that we expand our focus when considering effective professional development. In a study of of 234 teachers, representing K-12, they found that??teachers who regularly use stress-reducing strategies increase their abilities to cope with the demands of the career and are positioned to do a better job educating students? (Breen, 2016). These ?ndings strongly suggest that by prioritizing an educator?s social-emotional learning helps him or her to be there to participate in school wide SEL practices. ?If you ?nd yourself thinking it is counterintuitive to ask a professional to give so much and then to provide only professional development and not personal development (through the lens of SEL) you?re with us!

In this session you will:

  • mindfulness/stress reduction practices to promote self-regulation of attention;
  • non-judgmental awareness;
  • how to develop a personal mindfulness practice (which is necessary to be a mindful teacher which is necessary to teach mindfulness!); and
