FULL CAPACITY - It's Time! Addressing Mental Health of Children in the Classroom
It’s Time! Addressing Mental Health of Children in the Classroom
Mental health is a strong predictor of school success. Educators have daily opportunities to positively impact the mental health of children. To do so, one must understand the clues that a child’s behavior gives about their current mental state, the impact of mental illness or trauma on a child within the context of their culture and what elements of teaching are essential to supporting mental well-being and learning. This six-eight hour in-service uses film case studies from real classrooms and stories from personnel. Participants are given ample time to explore topics in a safe and engaging environment.
