TREC May Webinar Series and Book Study Info Session

A Social Emotional Learning (SEL) 4-week webinar series focused on Fostering Emotional Learning and Educator Emotional Resilience

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, TREC is redesigning the in-person Social Emotional Learning Summit (originally scheduled for June 6th) into a month-long webinar series convening each Tuesday in May, from 3:00pm - 4:30pm. The topics of the original summit: Social Emotional Learning and Educator Emotional Resilience are more important than ever as teachers adapt to the changing needs of teaching during a pandemic. Specifically, this webinar series will begin by focusing on teachers’ management of stress, teachers' well-being, and teacher self-care. The last two webinars in the May series, will focus on supporting student well-being, social emotional learning, and trauma-informed classrooms.

RECORDING NOW AVAILABLE: TREC Webinar #1: Stress Strategies for the Educator and the Classroom

Recording of webinar now available. Please register for access to the recording. This webinar will review the evidence base for the applications of mindfulness training in the classroom, as well as how it can support teachers. Currently, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, educators are experiencing a drastic change in their teaching and day-to-day work. In addition, many educators have high expectations that can be hard to achieve right now. All of which can contribute to stress and negatively impact emotional and physical wellbeing. When a person’s body is habitually in a stressed state or “crisis mode”, cognition is altered (impeding attention, memory, and emotional regulation).
