In collaboration with the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders (CCBD)
It’s no surprise that teachers-especially in their first five years in the classroom-experience elevated levels of stress. And teachers who work with children with emotional-behavioral disorders (EBD) deal with an extra layer of challenge on top of the paperwork, large caseloads, lack of resources, and high-stakes tests that affect most teachers. This webinar will equip you to monitor yourself for subtle signs of stress and impending burnout, and give you a set of strategies for self-management and self-care. Beyond taking care of yourself, you’ll also learn how to work productively with administrators to remove or mitigate some of the root causes of school-based stressors.
After viewing this program, you will be able to:
- Discuss the causes of stress, burnout and attrition in teachers, with attention to special factors affecting personnel who work with students who exhibit challenging behaviors
- Identify signs and symptoms of stress and burnout in yourself and others
- Implement strategies to help you manage stress on a personal level
- Identify and advocate for strategies to support teachers, reduce attrition, and improve the quality of work life for personnel working with students with EBD.
