This live course is dedicated to all teachers willing to learn how to effectively manage stress in their own life and help stressed students during their online and onsite classes. Teachers can be a great resource for students, becoming well-being activators and facilitators of resilience processes, if they take care of themselves and are able to use adaptive skills to cope with environmental challenges and the stress related to them. The course will provide participants with stress management tools and techniques inspired by the latest scientific evidences in cognitive and positive psychology and by Mindfulness practice, that they can reuse for their personal and professional life right after the course.
