The Mindful Teacher

Developing Self-awareness and Self-care in Ourselves and Our Schools

When we ask parents and teachers what they really want for their children, the responses are usually as much about happiness, wellbeing, and resilience as they are about success and academics. If we want to help our children develop the skills and capacities they will need for a fruitful, balanced life, it is crucial that the adults in their lives know how to model these skills effectively.

 

In order for us to provide a safe and nurturing environment, we also need to be able to understand and care for ourselves. Drawing on research from social neuroscience we will explore the power and potential of the role of the educator as well as the evidence that how we teach is as important as what we teach. We will explore in practical ways how developing greater self awareness can transform our daily experience as adults in a demanding social environment and help us to work more effectively with colleagues, parents and children.
