Well-being on the Teachers’ Desk: Resilience & Recovery for Teachers

Course description

Course overview and purpose:
The current coronavirus pandemic puts to the test psychological resilience as the ability to mentally or emotionally cope with a crisis or to return to pre-crisis status. Key to resilience is the recovery process, which consists of the replenishment of the energy and resources used in different life domains. According to the “recovery paradox”, super-demanding days or job are those in which people are most in need of recovery because their resources ran down. Yet, in those days, people are also less likely to engage in recovery activities (Sonnentag, 2018), which easily leads to stress or negative feelings.
This Resilience & Recovery Course aims to provide participants with the knowledge, tools, and reflective ideas to positively face unexpected circumstances by the effective management of their recovery process, eventually leading to higher resilience and well-being.

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify cognitive, physical, and emotional demands and resources.
  • Identify different types of recovery experiences.
  • Reflect on conflict and enrichment from different life domains.
  • Identify a set of personal resources that can be improved for higher resilience.
  • Develop SMART goals.
