WEBINAR – Building Resilience in Turbulent Times with Andrew Fuller

Join up for this free webinar – a national Independent schools initiative – for educators, school leaders, Principals and wellbeing staff.
Turbulent times call for resilient minds. From COVID-19, the Ukraine invasion and rampant flooding, it’s already been a tough start to 2022. As resilience is being tested, students in our care are looking for support and guidance.

How might we understand and reduce anxiety for ourselves and others? How can we engage in conversation about tough times? And how can we create hope and positivity for the future?

  • Learn the three active ingredients of resilience

  • Develop strategies to reduce anxiety

  • Build self-esteem and deal with setbacks

  • Gain strategies for engaging in tough conversations

  • Help students prepare for a better future

This training is recommended as some roles of a Health and Safety Representative cannot be performed without this training.
