always helping educators make the right choice
PD Outline:• Saying or hearing, ‘I’m stressed’ is common. But what exactly is stress, when is it too much and how can we make things more manageable? This workshop will investigate how the experience of stress can actually be helpful; as well as when it becomes detrimental to our wellbeing. The session will encourage individuals to better understand their personal stressors, how their reactions can be unhelpful and explore strategies that help us to manage more effectively.AITSL Standards:1.1 Physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of students3.5 Use effective classroom communication4.3 Manage challenging behaviour4.4 Maintain student safety6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practiceA $5 booking fee will be charged on all cancelled registrationsRegistrations cancelled within 7 days of the event cannot be refunded however can be credited towards another Professional Development session with anzuk in 2018No refunds or credits will be processed for cancellations within 24 hours of the eventRegistrations will close strictly 48 hours prior to the eventPlease note that there is a minimum number of registrations required for us to run this event, if this number is not reached, the event will be cancelled and you will be informed 48 hours prior
