What can education professionals do to support their own mental health and wellbeing?
What can education professionals do to embed wellbeing in their schools?
Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) offers an informative and engaging one-day workshop which addresses the challenges of strengthening mental wellbeing for school staff and provides a mindfulness-based strategy to improve staff wellbeing within schools, both on an individual basis and as part of a whole-school approach.
While exploring the evolutionary basis of, and scientific evidence relating to, stress, we provide a brief introduction to what mindfulness is and isn’t, the theoretical framework underpinning it, and some basic practices which can support education professionals in their personal and professional lives. In particular, we look at how these practices can help us to step back, notice choice points and work with difficulty as it arises. We also look at the cultural context and how to implement a strategy to improve wellbeing for individuals and across the whole school.
