Filling Your Cup: Comprehensive Self-Care Strategies (An e-Learning Companion Guide for School Leaders)
School staff well-being is essential to a healthy and resilient school. With this in mind, Healthier Generation, through the support of Kaiser Permanente, developed this engaging four-part ondemand training series packed with tools and resources to help school staff focus on their own well-being.
Check Your B’s: Map & Monitor How Stress Shows Up
This resource is great for teachers and students alike. Throughout your day, notice your 3B’s – how your brain, body, and behavior shift when you are relaxed and when you are stressed. Consider how this impacts how you show up at different times and what supports you may need in spaces where you feel less comfortable.
Teacher Self-Care Resources
Just like learning how to eat healthy and be active, students and staff need social-emotional skills to thrive and lead happy, healthy lives. Together with Harmony SEL, Healthier Generation is helping schools connect social-emotional learning and wellness to foster healthier classrooms and communities
Building Empathy Through Understanding Trauma (Webinar)
Taking a Me Moment
Me Moments are practices students (and adults!) can use to address their needs at any moment in school and at home. These practices build self-regulation* – an important social-emotional skill to identify and manage emotions, that helps prepare you to learn and engage with others.
Boundary Setting Tool
Use this tool on your own or with your team to identify and share boundaries to help foster a culture of care.
Give and Receive Feedback to Strengthen Staff Connectedness
Feedback is any information you receive about yourself. It can be formal or informal, direct or vague, solicited or very unwelcomed. Berne Brown stated “How do we stay aligned with our values while receiving feedback, regardless of the skill of the person delivering it?” This toolkit provides activities to improve one’s skills of receiving and giving feedback.
BOOST Feedback Model
Before delivering feedback, look through the BOOST Model. In giving effective feedback, it is helpful to plan what you will say and how you will say it.
Supporting Students Through Trauma – Informed Approaches
This resource is a practical tool for school and district staff to help evaluate their practices and policies through a Trauma-Informed Lens.
HEARTS Trauma-Informed Principles
HEARTS is guided by six core principles for creating trauma-informed schools. These six principles are applied to students and adult members of the school community (staff, caregivers, leadership) alike, as well as to the school system as a whole. They are aimed at promoting wellness and school success for all, and are particularly important for those impacted by trauma.
