With somatic movements and mindfulness, each teacher can learn to build a personal practice to enhance resilience in the face of everyday joys and demands of the classroom. Guided by movement specialist Valerie Baadh Garrett, each participant will be able to learn and practice six essential activities that build inner strength, emotional balance, and enhanced ability to form clear, consistent boundaries while working with students, parents, and colleagues.
This free program, like our other webinars, will last 60 minutes, including a time for each participant to ask questions directly to Valerie to answer either live during the broadcast or privately afterwards. After the live broadcast, each registered participant will receive a free edited file of the program for personal reference before the program becomes available for purchase or as a pay-per-view on our Vimeo channel.
Psychology Today defines resilience:
Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes. Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient, among them a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with such an outlook that they are able to change course and soldier on.
