According to a recent Robert Wood Johnson Foundation study conducted by Pennsylvania State University (2016):
- Forty-six percent of teachers report high daily stress, which compromises their health, sleep, quality of life, and teaching performance.
- When teachers are highly stressed, students show lower levels of both social adjustment and academic performance.
- Interventions on the organizational or individual level, or those that reach both, can help reduce teacher stress by changing the culture and approach to teaching.
- Programs for mentoring, workplace wellness, social emotional learning, and mindfulness are all proven to improve teacher well-being and student outcomes.
We support K-12 educators to
- Learn interventions for organizational and individual level changes to help reduce teacher stress through implementing a culture of “team care”
- Learn how to create comprehensive self-care plans which are continuous, incorporate daily care, mindfulness, and “trigger” care
- Build resilience in students and mitigate the impacts of “Trauma Brain” which can make learning difficult or even impossible
- Understand the impacts of student adversity and trauma on school culture
- Increase and sustain faculty and staff morale
- Increase student learning by engaging students with trauma informed practices in every school setting from the bus ride to the classroom
- Create a custom trauma training/professional development model which best meets your schedule
