Staff & Educator Seminar: Resilient Practices
Resilient Practices for Educators, Staff Members, Administrators, and Teams
Join Alliance for a Healthier Generation for a professional learning series on staff well-being, including stress management, holistic well-being, and positive work culture. Social-emotional health matters as we continue to maneuver through challenging times. Practices in building resilience can improve overall job satisfaction and ensure we take care of our own health as we work with other adults and serve youth throughout California.

Advance Staff Well-Being Through Awareness
Identify how to prevent and move out of the burnout cycle. We all juggle a lot—whether a paraprofessional, teacher, bus driver, cafeteria worker, or an administrator. Join us to create a holistic, self-care map based on our limited time and personal needs.
Thursday, November 11, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST
Communicate Healthy Boundaries for Individual and Collective Well-Being
Prevent or move out of the cycle of burnout by setting healthy boundaries. Join us to understand components of setting an effective boundary, reflect on individual challenges and boundary styles, and identify how boundaries support living our values. We will leave ready to communicate our boundaries to adults and youth.
Thursday, December 9, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST
Grow Relationships with Effective Complaining and Gratitude
Strengthen relationships with colleagues, students, and families with effective complaining and gratitude practices. After a deep dive into how effective complaining benefits interpersonal relationships, we will identify how we prefer to receive and give gratitude.
Thursday, January 20, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST
Filling Your Cup: Positive Self-Care Strategies for Educators
Build a safeguard against burnout in the new year. We will practice effectively communicating our needs through mediation, boundary setting, and gratitude practices. Self-care does not mean adding more to our schedule. It helps us thrive in and out of the work environment.
Thursday, February 17, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST
Build a Positive Work Culture by Leveraging Team Members’ Strengths
Apply strengths-based values to increase team effectiveness. We will reflect on our identities, values, and unique contributions to boost team dynamics. All school and district staff are welcome to join, including cafeteria workers, bus drivers, paraprofessionals, teachers, and administrators.
Thursday, March 17, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST
Model the Path to Self-Regulation for Students and Colleagues
Empower others and ourselves to manage stress, delay gratification, stay organized, and act with agency over their lives. Self-regulation is a critical skill for young people and adults to navigate every facet of life. We will demonstrate self-regulation strategies in our Me Moments Toolkit, so we all can model self-regulation in our classroom and work environments.
Thursday, April 28, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. PST
Give and Receive Feedback for Impactful Relationships
Use a strengths-based approach for more impactful feedback. Receiving and giving feedback does not always feel good, but strong teams rely on the clarity, accountability, and vulnerable dialogue that feedback provides. We will discuss several types of feedback, the ‘BOOST’ model, and common pitfalls that make feedback challenging.
Each session will feature different strategies to help educators and school district staff prioritize their own well-being. Learn ways to combat burnout, set healthy boundaries, practice gratitude, and use feedback as an effective communication tool with colleagues, students, and families.
Online sessions can be accessed individually or by teams to learn strategies that are actionable and easy to integrate into daily routines, staff culture, and team meetings.
Attend all sessions live or register to receive the recordings. Staff well-being webinar series is provided in support from the California Department of Education and Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools.
