The aim of this institute is to equip teachers with the tools and resources to support students’ mental health struggles and address behavioral and educational concerns of students in their classrooms to promote learning and positive educational outcomes.
Research tells us that young people who feel safe, connected and secure and have loving and trusting relationships are more likely to be active participants in their learning and to achieve better physical, emotional, social and educational outcomes.
These sessions seek to equip teachers with the insights, tools and resources to understand better and support students’ mental health needs and struggles in the current environment. The sessions will also provide teachers with psychological concepts and strategies to help them more effectively address behavioral and emotional concerns of students in their classrooms and maximise positive learning and educational outcomes.
As a result of participating in this learning institute, attendees can expect to:
