Welcome Back Week 2023: Managing the Emotional Wellbeing of Our Students


Working in education requires an ongoing commitment to supporting the emotional health of students—knowing where to start can be a challenge. Come hear tips and tricks from a therapist’s toolbox that will aid you in your work with students. In this session, you will learn how to attune to and validate emotions to help students and learn classic pitfalls of well-intentioned adults. We’ll discuss how you can still be able to say “no” to inappropriate behaviors while honoring students’ emotions. Come away understanding a basic framework for managing anxiety and depression as it manifests in the school setting and with usable tips and tools you can use in your day-to-day interactions with students.
