Connected Educators Webinar: Understanding Stress and Learning- Learning to Learn Around Mental Health

Understanding Stress and Learning- Learning to Learn Around Mental Health
Why do students behave the way they do? This webinar will discuss the underlying processes of our brain and how it handles stress.
The goal of this session is to:
1. understand how to look for the stressors that may be contributing to students’ misbehaviours, and
2. explore evidence-based strategies for handling stressors commonly experienced by students.

Participants will gain a basic understanding of the neural responses to stress, as well as a variety of interventions to minimize and address stressors.
