About This Webinar

Join AFT’s Share My Lesson for this free, for-credit webinar to support your health and well-being, part of our 2024 Wellness Series

How can we be healthfully present? People who experience traumatic events and environments can face long-term changes to their brains, bodies, and behaviors. To best leverage trauma-informed strategies for students, educators must be well. In this 2024 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference session, participants will examine educators' occupational health hazards, assess their professional quality of life, and review effective coping strategies.

How can educators prioritize self-care and well-being? It starts with recognizing the signs of burnout, compassion fatigue, and stress, which can negatively impact both personal and professional lives. Educators should learn to set boundaries, practice mindfulness, and engage in self-reflection to better understand their own needs and limitations. Learn how you can maintain your well-being and more effectively support students who may be dealing with their own trauma and challenges.

Note: Each webinar in this Wellness Series is a stand-alone professional development webinar; you can watch one or all and in any particular order that suits your needs. Register now.

Supporting Myself
As a Self-Care Practitioner, I had to make room to be well. Sounds daft but give yourself some space – in my case I used mindfulness to help me gain control. Remember that good days for your wellbeing won't always look the same. We don't always have the same levels of energy or motivation. Be kind to yourself and do what feels right for you at the moment.

Great PD
Gave a lot of resources and backed up the information with research. The presenter was well informed and the webinar was very interactive.
