Educator Emotional Well-Being Training

Professional development short course equipping educators to manage stress and anxiety



Social & Emotional Learning for Adults

The Educators’ Emotional Well-Being is an online professional development training for individual educators which will help you conquer your personal stress and improve overall mental health.

Educators have one of the most rewarding yet stressful careers. From lesson planning, chaotic classrooms, parent and co-worker communication, and a personal life, your days can be filled with stress, anxiety, and heightened emotions. Children develop in the context of relationships with key adults. As key socializers and role models, you must understand and have the tools to manage your own emotions to best model and foster children's emotional, cognitive, and social early learning development. When educators, like you, are able to regulate their emotions while remaining calm and focused, they are more effective in their role to successfully guide and facilitate learning for children.

Why do educators need emotional well-being support?
