Balanced emotions are foundations to effective teaching. Today’s teachers struggle to keep up with the high demands from the administration, students, and parents – not to mention that their professional responsibilities often interfere with their personal life. Without effective coping mechanisms in place, they can suffer emotional and physical setbacks that can lead to stress, job dissatisfaction and burnout.
Emotional Resilience for Teachers (ERT) introduces practical sustainable and transferable strategies that will allow the teacher to step back, rebalance and refocus. With a long-term goal in mind, these techniques will reignite the inspiration for education and prevent burnout.
This three-level program was developed to help teachers to:
- decrease emotional exhaustion
- optimize awareness of emotional reactivity
- decrease unproductive mood changes
- bring about greater comfort in managing student-patient and teacher-staff relationship
- provide a balance between personal and professional life
- improve levels of mindfulness and resilience
This program consists of 3 sections with more than 35 topics. The sections include:
- tools and techniques developed to provide a relief from challenging situations teachers might encounter every day
- ’emotional retreat’ style exercises that support teachers in managing the persistent stressors
activities that deepen mind and body connection and enhance emotional healing to manage and/or prevent burnout
