Creating a time and the space for teachers to process the pandemic
The training for teachers is crucial so that they have the time and space to process the intensity of the last couple of years.
The experience has been one of constant change and varying expectations of what is needed and what was possible to give. There has been a lot to process. The whole teaching profession has done an incredible job there is much to appreciate and acknowledge.
In the training we go through what has occurred:
the fear experienced
the negotiating of risk
what happens to the brain with anxiety
the loss of control
the understanding of what was needed/ adaptability
the opportunities to deepen on every level
Throughout we offer opportunities for colleagues to talk and share via the break out rooms on zoom, this is essential to allow this space so that your staff feel heard and seen.
A major factor in supporting yourself is knowing how to support your body to release tension and connect to deeper settlement and contentment in the body. We have lots of very simple, short exercises that we do throughout the training and that can then be shared with the children.
Training is on zoom or in person if appropriate, it takes 1-1.5 hours approx
