Improving Staff Wellbeing by Dr Gillian Shotton

This session is aimed at staff and helping them with their emotional wellbeing. The principle is that in order to help pupils to become more emotionally healthy we first need to look after ourselves. The analogy of putting on your own oxygen mask before helping the child next to you is key here.

 

Many of the ideas contained within the session will also be relevant and useful in thinking about the pupils and ways to help them, but the primary focus is to support staff. Delivered by Gillian Shotton, a highly experienced Educational Psychologist. She has written a number of books and journal articles. Most recently published is the second edition of 'Emotional Well-being, an introductory handbook for schools.

Building Emotional Resilience & Critical Thinking Through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Based Skills

Traditionally, CBT has been highly effective in helping to treat anxiety and depression. However, more recently, several top psychologists argue that teaching CBT in schools can act as a preventive measure to such conditions, whilst also enhancing critical thinking skills.

 

By learning techniques to spot your distorted thoughts, you can identify catastrophising, mind-reading, labelling, blaming and black-and-white thinking. Essentially, you learn to think critically, problem solve and, in a sense, call yourself out when your mind is distorting the truth or making misinformed assumptions. During this webinar, Gemma Laming, a psychotherapist who practises low-intensity CBT, will explore how developing such skills lay the foundations for a resilient mindset and deep critical thinking. Gemma will also offer various tips for introducing CBT skills within the school and classroom environment.
