Shifting Mindsets: Finding Natural Ways to Cope

Life is always shifting; up, down, and all around. This training looks at not just “coping skills”, but ways to highlight the things we do naturally to shift our mindset and perspective when the daily stressors of life hit.  Often, we hear, “I don’t have time for anything other than what I already do” or “coping skills don’t work”.  This training will provide not only a tangible list and description of coping skills (both for big and small emotions), but also the practical examples of how to weave them into your/your student/clients day in a way that feels more natural and consistent.  We hope to provide a different perspective on how to view and use coping skills to provide natural shifts in mood and attention when needed.  Join Ravenwood Health on November 3rd for this great training! Follow the link for additional information and registration.

Explore self care techniques and develop new habits for a healthier and happier teaching experience. This virtual session on November 8th will review how stress affects the brain and body and ways to mitigate stress in the workplace and beyond. Action steps for physical, social, emotional well being will be shared. Follow this link for additional information and registration!
