Stress management in schools - M-Powered Projects



Teachers are experiencing a lot of stress. In Ireland, the UK and USA, 40% of teachers are on medication for anxiety.  

Good teachers are natural performers. They illicit curiosity, fascination and wonder with voice tone, body language and attitude. Pattern interrupts for negative state change and focusing techniques are essential for good teaching. These processes help the kids to learn but also connect the teachers with the value and purpose of their career, making it more enjoyable and rewarding.  

It can be so easy to get bogged down in the requirements or the education system, meeting targets, and enforcing discipline and behavioural standards that teachers can lose sight of why they became educators in the first place.

This course will reconnect them with the sense of purpose where they feel valued and can reflect that value back to their classroom.

This course will also cover the topic of trauma awareness. Over 10% of kids have experience trauma. These are the kids who will be disruptive for seemingly no reason and is often attributed to simply bad behaviour. By increasing trauma awareness in teachers, we can better support these students and manage related behaviours more effectively.

We want to help our teachers create a classroom environment where children feel inspired, understood and safe and that they look forward to every day.

For whom?

This course is for teachers, trainers, coaches, and educators but also administrators and managers.
