In this session we will be taking a deep look into the integral relationship between coping and the various social emotional learning constructs we explored in the initial workshop. We will be actively participating in a variety of different strategies that can support the development of healthy coping within a variety of settings, situations, and populations. The strategies themselves will be based on the Dialectical Behavioural Therapy model of coping called A.C.C.E.P.T.S. Specifically, explore how activity, distraction, cheerfulness, thankfulness, gratitude, helpfulness, and consciously activating our senses can be incredibly meaningful coping strategies - yet are commonly ignored. In this time of COVID-19 and its impact on our moods, actions, and thoughts, expanding our coping toolboxes to strengthen our social emotional learning foundations has never been more critical. Come join this follow up workshop, from the Serious Play: Building your Social Emotional Learning Toolbox workshop, for an opportunity to increase coping capacities and overall mental wellness for ourselves and our students and continue to reinforce the road towards resiliency.
This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
