Under Pressure – burnout prevention for educators

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
Educational field is one of the most affected fields when it comes to burnout (latest research indicates that), it is both connected with formal and non-formal education and different types of educators: teachers, professors, principals, trainers and facilitators, assistants, education project managers and so on.
Everyday educators and teachers have to deal with unexpected situations and with the need to find the balance between their own needs and values and the ones of the groups, colleagues and institutions
With this project we want to create a comfortable and calm space where educators and staff, especially those who have faced moments of crisis, burn-out and stress, can reflect on their role, behaviour, needs and resilience; we want also to provide them with deep and practical methods and tools (Transactional Analysis and Nonviolent Communication) for recovering balance with themselves and with the target groups in their work.

Learning outcomes:

  • Improved professional and personal competences on self-care, empathy and balanced management of needs, relationships and communication, addressed to the support of other colleagues and marginalised/disadvantaged youth, educating to peaceful relationships and self-awareness.
  • Increased motivation and satisfaction in their daily work and in their career chances.
