Caring for Ourselves to Care for Others

December 11, 2017 @ 9:20 am - 10:40 am

Dr. Jennifer Lewy, School Manager and Psychologist at Ometz & Dr. Samantha Goldwater-Adler, Psychologist

Teachers have one of the most important jobs in our society – to shape, guide and educate the next generation. This responsibility can be just as rewarding as it is challenging. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to translate difficult experiences into opportunities for growth. In so doing, we will talk about the importance of recognizing and acknowledging our emotions, of being in the present moment, and of self-compassion. We will teach mindfulness skills in order to effectively ground ourselves and move forward. Lastly, we will discuss how these same skills can be applicable to students and to communicating with their parents. In order to best help others, we need to be able to care for ourselves.
