Presented by:

Dr. Rebecca Pillai Riddell, C.Psych., FCAHS

About the webinar:

Educators have been on the frontline throughout the pandemic, dealing with the exponential effects of stress in children, parents, colleagues, and themselves. Ironically, stress is a good thing for building resilience. However, the pandemic has absolutely proven the age-old saying that too much of a good thing is bad! While many products and services aim to reduce and manage stress, without cognitive and behavioural tools to build everyday resilience, these products are unlikely to succeed.
Join Dr. Pillai Riddell in an engaging introduction to some quick, evidence-based hacks that can help educators cope with stress and build resiliency.
