Building resilience in schools
10 June 2014
The Centre for Resilience ran a workshop for the staff of Beechcroft school.
The workshop was designed to provide simple and practical solutions that could be used by the staff and students to help reduce stress, build resilience and increase creativity and engagement. Staff had a chance to see the impact of stress in real-time on their physiological responses using biofeedback technology. They were also able to see how the use of mindfulness based breathing techniques alters the stress response in real-time.
The Centre offers bespoke resilience workshops and seminars for schools. Please contact us if you are interested in running a resilience programme or event for your school at firstname.lastname@example.org.
