WellEducator: In-Depth Virtual Book Study of THRIVE: Practical Strategies to Nourish Teacher Wellbeing

 

WellEducator and NW PBIS are hosting a book study series based on an in-depth reading and application of the book Thrive: Practical Strategies to Nourish Teacher Wellbeing by Daniela Falecki, 2023.  In the words of the author, “This book is not a fluffy self-help book putting pressure on you to be well in a world full of chaos. It’s a book to help you navigate that chaos, celebrate the amazing work that you do and learn to thrive” (Falecki, 2023, p. 1).  

In this 8 session book study series participants will, apply the basics of teacher wellbeing including the “good and the bad” of stress, debate different theories of wellbeing, evaluate social and emotional competence and psychosocial health and safety in the workplace.  Participants will investigate and synthesize strategies to support their own thriving by prioritizing their time, mental wellbeing, relationships, impact, values, and emotions. 

Audience: Anyone in education looking for wellbeing strategies at the individual, team, and/or organizational levels.  The content will be helpful for Teachers, Educational Assistants, Administrators, School Counselors, Early Childhood Providers, and Specialists.

Times: All sessions are 3:30 to 5 PM PT

Session Dates:

October 23, 2024: Introduction & the Basics of Teacher Wellbeing

November 20, 2024: The good and bad of stress

December 11, 2024: Theories of wellbeing

WellEducator: Teacher Wellbeing in Action: A 3-Part Webinar Series

It is widely known that teaching is a stressful profession.  That’s why we put together this 3-part series Teacher Wellbeing in Action focused on critical topics impacting the educational workforce at the individual, team, and organizational levels.  We’re interested in sharing strategies that will increase knowledge, build helpful habits, and create sustained balance for the long haul.  

Join us as we explore the landscape of stress and its impact on the teaching profession, learn the skills of boundary setting, how to maintain balance within an unbalanced system, and other everyday wellbeing strategies.

The Teacher Wellbeing in Action series works well when attended as a series, however, each session works well as a standalone workshop in the event you cannot attend all three.  

Audience: Anyone in education looking for wellbeing strategies at the individual, team, and/or organizational levels.  The content will be helpful for Teachers, Educational Assistants, Administrators, School Counselors, Early Childhood Providers, and Specialists.

Times: All sessions are 3:30 to 5 PM PT and will be recorded.

Session Dates:

October 2, 2024: Part 1: Let’s Unpack Stress and Protective Factors

November 6, 2024: Part 2: Let’s Explore Psychosocial Safety at Work
