Adult SEL Superpowers

Our greatest asset is our own well-being. Learn how to combat/prevent educator burnout using personal resilience skills. These skills are essential for educator well-being and for leaders to create a healing and equity-centered school.

This workshop shows how our human capacity for resilience is at the core of our well-being. Skillful means for bouncing back from the difficult stuff begins with deepening awareness and connection with ourselves. From a foundation of accessing our own centered and balanced self, we have a powerful superpower for helping others. Tapping into this superpower comes first through self-compassion for our own vulnerability and then through understanding our shared commonality with others. This workshop illuminates the small intentional changes we can make in how we think, feel, and act that lead to big results in connectedness and belonging. It will open your heart to your love of education and boost your optimism.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Identify protective patterns that pull us all off balance, including understanding how our own stress impacts our well-being and effectiveness as educators
  • Explore practical in-the-moment skills to center, connect, and collaborate
  • Understand intergenerational cultural patterns as essential to diversity, equity, and inclusion

A $150 stipend will be offered to each participant employed by a Sonoma County public school, upon signed and fulfilled stipend agreement. Lunch will be provided.
