Emotional Health in our Schools

Open to educators and staff at the Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board. By invitation only.

Emotional Health in our Schools

Children are more anxious, aggressive, and shut down than ever. Faced with this epidemic of emotional health crises and behavioral problems, teachers are asking themselves what went wrong. Why have we lost our students? More importantly: how can we get them back? Based on the book Reclaiming Our Students: Why Children Are More Anxious, Aggressive, and Shut-Down than Ever—and What We Can Do About It – this workshop will support educators with strategies for how to build, feed, and protect the student-teacher relationship. We will address why children are displaying more challenging behaviours than ever, and what we can do to address these issues at their root. We will explore how we can help our students and classes to shift their identity as the “problem student” or “bad class.”

Redefining the meaning of ‘safe’ schools – we will look at what an emotionally safe classroom looks and feels like. How can we create the emotional safety needed to awaken feeling and build a sense of connection and community in our classrooms? Join Hannah  for a day of discovery that will help you re-connect to your calling as an educator and understand the vital importance of your leadership, now more than ever.
