STAFF MENTAL HEALTH AND EMOTIONAL WELLBEING
TEACHER | AUTHOR
Many teachers may feel like they are stuck in ‘surviving’ – with ‘thriving’ nowhere in sight. Our teachers have been under immense pressure, overwhelm and mental health problems, particularly over recent years. Finding a work-life balance is difficult.
Help your staff reduce their anxiety, depression and overwhelm with My BodyMIND Staff Wellbeing and give your team vital somatic tools to help them manage their mental health.
My BodyMIND Staff Wellbeing is an evidence-based advanced mindfulness and self-inquiry program based on a somatic approach, engaging the latest neuroscience on the mind, body, brain and behaviour.
How does it work?
Research shows to reach our true potential in our professional and personal lives, the emotions in our bodies must be experienced on a visceral level. Somatic awareness, or interoception builds our capacity to feel safe with our challenging, thoughts and feelings without being consumed by them, thereby improving resilience, mental clarity, decision-making, workplace relationships, team morale and so much more.
This program equips your staff with highly-practical emotional intelligence tools to process and let go of overwhelming thoughts and feelings of failure, anxiety, hurt and burnout, using somatic awareness, nervous system regulation, advanced mindfulness, compassion, acceptance, resourcing and self-inquiry so they are socially engaged, highly productive and emotionally available members of your team.
With a 'BodyMIND' approach, your staff will be able to identify what drives their workplace overwhelm and stress and learn practical and effective tools to process their own work-related issues, negative self-talk and personal problems that feed into the workplace.
How will it help?
Whether it’s managing difficult behaviours in the classroom, having confronting conversations at parent-teacher interviews or tackling report-writing time, your staff will walk away from this program with a direct, practical approach to processing their own thoughts and emotions, reducing anxiety and depression and managing everyday triggers.
Staff Wellbeing will help your staff to:
- Be emotionally available for their students
- Positively collaborate with their colleagues
- Find ways to switch off from work and refresh the mind
- Avoid stress and burning out
- Build productive focus
- Improve staff morale
- Develop better relationships with parents
- Manage student behaviour with a clear mind
- Meet report writing timelines with more ease
- Solve professional issues with respect, initiative and innovation
- Increase work success, satisfaction and fulfillment.
This program is delivered in one day, two half days or eight one-hour sessions over one term. Depending on your location and timetable, together, we can arrange the most suitable format.
