Creating connection when physically disconnected: A bite-size wellbeing course for parents, carers and educators of girls
Use our new bite-sized course to provide much needed guidance for parents and educators to support the wellbeing of students. Developed by one of Australia’s leading voices on the wellbeing of girls, Dannielle Miller, the one-hour course has been created for teachers, parents and carers to equip them with the tools and understanding to help the girls stay mentally well during their time at home — away from school, their friends and their normal co-curricular activities.
The course will offer resources and practical tips and covers areas such as:
- What are the three keys to wellbeing?
- What role does gratitude play, how to teach it, how to raise a grateful child and how to be a grateful parent
- Connection – how to initiate and maintain relationships
- Teaching young people how to be great conversationalists
- Managing conflict
- The power of a collective project
- When should we be worried, and who do we turn to if we are?
- What if my child is worried about a friend?
- Action Plan if your child or student is in crisis
- Our relationship with self – the power of positive affirmations
Who is it for?
Teachers, parents and carers of girls aged 10 and up.
