Event Description

Suzuki teacher burnout is something that is widely experienced, but rarely openly acknowledged. Teachers often put tremendous pressure on themselves to be relentlessly positive, which can sadly result in burying valid emotions and inhibiting authentic relationships with students and colleagues. Through experiential exercises, collaborative discussion, and didactic presentations, this course aims to mindfully explore teacher burnout from a holistic and dialectical perspective. Through this process, participants will be invited to acknowledge and accept where they are, while simultaneously learning specific techniques to change ineffective thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. 

Course full.
