What is smartEducation?
smartEducation (Stress Management And Relaxation Techniques) is an evidence-based program designed for educators and professional support staff.
This program provides educators with an opportunity for immersion in mindfulness practice to apply techniques for developing emotional balance, to enhance concentration, decrease occupational stress, and employ self-care techniques.
By the end of the smartEducation program, you will have a “SMART-Tool-Box” of skills to:
– Develop greater awareness of emotions
– Create more effective strategies for responding to difficult situations
– Apply mindfulness training to interactions with students, colleagues and others
