Webinar for Staff and Faculty Mental Wellness during Pandemic

In light of growing concerns around the Coronavirus outbreak, we are seeing an increase in individuals feeling nervous. Being concerned and empathetic about this outbreak is normal. However, you and your students may experience feelings of discomfort, impacting concentration, productivity and even disrupting sleep patterns. This free one-hour workshop will provide simple tips, practices and ideas on how to respond to students that are nervous and explore ways that will support our well-being and ways to keep ourselves, or students, and our communities empowered, nourished and supported.

When plans change: Managing disappointment and becoming resilient

Any life is a life of change. We experience transitions in work and relationships, changes in our physical and mental health, and new events in our school communities and even in our world. Sometimes we know a change is going to happen, while other times it comes suddenly and unexpectedly. Maybe it is a disappointment, or maybe it is a wonderful surprise. As we start to re-adjust from online instruction, isolation, and physical distancing to a "new normal", this webinar will explore a few healthy practices for increasing your level of resilience and coping with change and disappointment.
