About the Session:

TARGET AUDIENCE: CLASSROOM TEACHERS, EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANTS AND OTHER SCHOOL STAFF ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND

As schools anticipate re-opening in the fall, student mental health and wellbeing will be a high priority for teachers and other school staff.  Teachers often feel that they need to be social workers or mental health professionals to support their students social-emotional needs; however, there are many ways to embed activities for wellbeing into everyday teaching practices.

This session will provide a practical framework and activities for supporting positive student mental health by:

  • building positive relationships,
  • fostering a sense of belonging, and
  • creating a sense of safety and calm through building caring conditions for learning.
