The Cutting Edge of Prevention and Wellbeing in Schools: Revealing the 3 Golden Keys
An event for Middle Years and Secondary Educators with Dr Tom Nehmy.
Schools are striving to meet the emotional needs of the students in their care. The challenge is knowing precisely which approaches will be most effective in preventing psychological problems, building resilience, and maintaining wellbeing.
Drawing on his award-winning research and having worked directly with thousands of students around Australia, Tom’s workshop offers participants an overview of what the very latest theory and research says about how schools can do wellbeing well.
Participants will leave this interactive session with a clear understanding of the 3 Golden Keys to school-based wellbeing and ideas for applying these in their own school context, including:
- What the latest theory and research says about preventing psychological disorders in adolescents, including anxiety, depression and eating disorders.
- An overview of the crucial psychological skills adolescents need to learn including balanced thinking, challenging perfectionism, emotion regulation, understanding stress, self-compassion, media literacy and gratitude.
- The role of parents in healthy psychological development including the #1 parenting mistake that gets in the way of healthy development & how to work with parents most effectively.
- How to build ‘School Connectedness' – an under-emphasised and powerful protective factor.
