Adult social emotional learning (SEL) and self-care have been promoted as global priorities since the COVID pandemic disrupted the traditional educational system in the Spring of 2020. Yet, there has been no framework to guide educators in a quest to improve their own social emotional well-being...until now! Please join Michelle Trujillo- author of Social Emotional Well-Being for Educators and creator of this framework, for a fifteen-hour workshop to explore the benefits of this new approach to adult SEL and self-care. Course participants will be introduced to a framework based on six ways of being that offer a foundation for finding life balance, relational authenticity, and vocational purpose.
A future-facing challenge for educators today is finding time to actively engage in nourishing one’s social emotional well-being while tackling the integration of COVID protocols, instructional loss, and student behaviors and mental health concerns, often related to trauma. The Framework for Social Emotional Well- Being* is a future-facing solution as it focuses on six behaviors that are already inherently exercised within an educator’s daily routine. They are the practice of being: reflective, intentional, empathetic, connected, accountable, and equitable. Throughout this course, participants will have an opportunity to actively engage in exploring the framework as a roadmap to discover the personal and professional relevance of each way of being. Participants will also have an opportunity to reflect, discuss and actively participate as they use a self- reflection check-in tool designed to provide educators with a process to recognize strengths and identify growth potential.
This course holds the answer to providing educators with a genuine framework for well-being and empowering them- as humans and as educators- to nourish their social and emotional well-being so that they can continue to be empathetic, kind, and understanding educators who are prepared to invest in the relational process that supports all students and results in learning. Furthermore, participants will explore using the Framework for Social Emotional Well-Being as a tool for solution-seeking issues of concern and/or conflict within their vocational responsibilities and/or daily routines.
- Participants will explore the Framework for Social Emotional Well-Being.
- Participants will utilize the Social Emotional Well-Being Self-Reflection Check-In* tool to reflect on strengths and recognize opportunities for personal and professional growth.
- Participants will learn strategies, including “in-the-moment” self-care techniques, to nourish their own well-being to prepare themselves to support the well-being of their students, colleagues, and stakeholders within the school community.
- Participants will understand the alignment between the framework and the five social emotional learning competencies as defined by the Collaborative of Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL).
- Participants will learn to operationalize the framework in application to issues of concern of conflict.
