An evidence-based book and webinar series for reducing teacher stress and improving their emotional health. Teaching is a highly stressful profession, and the program equips teachers with psychological coping skills for inside and outside the classroom. Teachers who participated in an evaluation of the program reported lower stress, improved coping, and reduced mental health symptoms of anxiety and depression.

ONLINE LESSON 1:

The first part of the recommended practice is to watch the overview video of the Adaptive Thinking chapters. After watching the overview video, pick at least one of the remaining videos to learn about a specific strategy. The Positive/Negative thoughts method is from Chapter 5 in the book (reframing negative thoughts form). The ABC Method is from Chapter 6 in the book (ABCDE form).
