Why Kids Are More Anxious, Aggressive, and Shut-Down than Ever—and What We Can Do About It (Private Event)
Workshop by invitation only.
Children are more anxious, aggressive, and shut down than ever. We were seeing these shifts before COVID 19 and now it is only intensified. Faced with this epidemic of emotional health crises and behavioural problems, teachers are asking themselves what’s gone wrong. More importantly: how can we create the conditions for change? Based on the book co-written by Hannah Beach and Tamara Strijack, 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, nurture, 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.” Join Hannah for a powerful workshop that will help you reconnect to your calling as an educator and understand the vital importance of your leadership, now more than ever.
