Staying standing when the storms come: building emotional resilience for academic achievement.

Young people are living in a world filled with more choice and opportunity than any previous generation. However, this choice and opportunity brings challenges and from time to time unfulfilled expectations for students, which all impacts upon their sense of well-being.

A talk for parents presented by John Doran, a secondary school teacher who has developed the Ways to Well-Being for Students Programme.  John has worked as a teacher in the Patrician Secondary School, Newbridge for over 20 years and is currently a guidance counsellor there. He builds upon his own experience of delivering well-being courses to students.

·        address stress in the life of the teacher/school leader and offer practices to alleviate this stress and improve your well-being

·        address the term ‘self-care’ and look at your life in terms of renewal both personally and professionally through mindfulness and well-being practices as well as reflecting upon patterns of thinking and habitual behaviour

·        pause, notice and breathe through engaging in simple, short practices in mindful awareness and learning how to bring these practices into your daily life in simple, practical ways

·        engage in short CBT exercises that can help to identify your stressors and ‘declutter’ your mind

·        learn how to appreciate the present moment in order to cultivate a more enriched and fuller life each day

This course is focused upon the teacher’s needs in terms of your emotional and mental well-being, with a passionate belief that in any school community, the very essence and foundation of all teaching and learning begins with the educator and so this course strives to bring care and attention to the teacher/school leader in order to create an improved and enjoyable work/life balance for you.
