Spotlight Keynote

Resilience, Stress And School Resilience

Resilience is an incredible construct - an overarching metaphor that touches on the arenas of stress, neural plasticity, emotional health, recovery, healing, mental illness, adaptation, defendedness, and therapy. It is relevant to everyone in most every role and regardless of age: teachers, therapists, youth workers, parents, support workers, etc. Fresh understandings are coming to the fore as we glean more working knowledge of the brain as well as the nature of emotion. The implications for the school system are profound, never mind the implications for dealing with stress in our own lives and in the lives of our loved ones.

Target Audience
Applicable to all (e.g. K-12)
