RISE 101 Resilience in a School Environment
Studies have found that children who have experienced trauma are six times more likely to have behavior problems and three times more likely to experience academic failure.? Educators who support these students have some of the highest levels of job-related stress, vicarious trauma, and burnout.? Kaiser Permanenteís Thriving Schools is working to provide support and resources for all school teachers, staff and leaders to build their resilience, help them understand their students, manage their own stress, and maintain emotional wellbeing in and out of the workplace. This session will outline some of the key contributors to stress and burnout in school environments and identify action items for developing resilient schools, as well as provide information and resource links that support resilient educators and schools. We will also review action items that educators can take to support their own resilience. Objectives: 1. Build awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs); secondary or vicarious trauma; teacher and staff stress; and positive steps towards school resilience. 2. Identify action items and links to resources that support schools in creating environments that foster resilience and emotional wellbeing of their employees and their students on a larger systems level. 3. Review and plan for action items that educators and staff can take to support their own resilience. The session will be a mixture of presentation, interactive discussion, and short exercises to help understand stress in schools and to identify next steps.
