Learn about educator mental health and strategies for well-being

About the workshop

Presented by Professor Allison Waters

In this workshop, I will provide an overview of the science of emotional wellbeing, with a focus on the emotional disorders of anxiety and depression. I will outline the evidence relating to positive emotional wellbeing as well as discuss the signs, symptoms and origins of anxiety and depression. I will provide a user-friendly model to help understand the experience of these emotional conditions and introduce practical self-management strategies that can be implemented in daily life to maintain positive emotional wellbeing. The workshop will be an interactive experience, providing participants with an opportunity to reflect on their own emotional wellbeing practices and develop an action plan to further develop their self-management skills beyond the workshop.
