Reducing emotional vulnerability and promoting emotional resilience and regulation
Emotions are a normal part of our everyday lives. We all experience a range of them. However for some students, emotions can seem overwhelming, like an out-of-control roller coaster. Adolescence in general is a turbulent time given the brain development and psycho-social changes. Then add the increased academic expectations, “exam time”, exploration of identity and the strive for independence. We have a perfect storm for emotional vulnerability.
In this webinar, you will learn what the “stress response” looks like in students from a physical and biological perspective which will help in identifying students who are emotionally vulnerable. We will then explore the factors that contribute to emotional vulnerability - the factors which individually or cumulatively impact student resilience. Lastly, you will leave with practical strategies that can be used on a daily basis that reduce emotional vulnerability and promote emotional resilience and regulation.
At the end of this webinar, in summary, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the stress response and how this affects learning and academic performance
- Understand vulnerability factors
- Learn practical everyday strategies for reducing emotional vulnerability and promoting emotional resilience and regulation
