Compassionate schools: A whole school approach to wellbeing
Wednesday 17th October at 3pm BST
About the webinar:
Emotional wellbeing is affected not only by our internal world of thoughts and feelings, but also by our social interactions and the culture of the organisation we belong to. Increased levels of compassion within an organisation can help all members to thrive, achieving optimum levels of creativity, motivation and performance. This webinar will show how a compassion-focused approach to wellbeing was introduced into a UK school, with the aim of improving the emotional wellbeing of both staff and students.
