Nurturing Your Staff: Building the Resilience of Head Start Teachers
Thursday, April 12, 2018 11:00:00 AM PDT - 1:00:00 PM PDT
New federal guidelines require Head Start Programs to regularly schedule opportunities to learn about mental health, wellness, and health education. This important requirement gives attention to an occurrence that is impacting programs across the country – teacher stress and burnout. The Devereux Center for Resilient Children is working every day to better understand this epidemic and provide solutions to better support teachers in Head Start programs and early care and education across the country. Using the Seven Dimensions of Wellness outlined in the NHSA Nurturing Staff Toolkit, during this one-hour webinar we will begin to outline practical strategies for building the resilience of teachers in Head Start programs. While everyone can benefit from this webinar, we have designed the content to specifically address the new Head Start Federal Requirements related to staff wellness. We will use guiding research that specifically speaks to teacher stress in Head Start programs, and we will use the Nurturing Staff Toolkit, available through membership with the National Head Start Association as our guide. We look forward to your participation!
