This learning event is right for you if you are an educator, wellbeing team member or school leader.
A greater understanding of anxious and avoidant learners and how to create a resilient mindset in schools is critically important.
When educators understand what promotes mental health in students and what constitutes an effective intervention they can be more effective in their classroom. More wellbeing programs are NOT the answer; an understanding of your students and successful mental health and wellbeing strategies is a powerful skill.
‘I’m reviewing the feedback from our day. It comes as no surprise to see how much people enjoyed your session, and how many people gave your session ’5′. Although 5 was the highest possible number, someone gave you a 5+ anyway – and I’m with her.’ Marion, Curriculum Manager
