St James Senior Girls’ School

Past Event
Headteacher of St James Senior Girls' School with students

The Positive Group, in partnership with St James Senior Girls’ School, are delighted to invite you to an evening spent exploring how psychology and neuroscience can be used to improve the emotional literacy, resilience, psychological health and wellbeing of teachers.

Resilient teachers perform better under pressure, have better cognitive function, a greater tolerance of uncertainty, experience better physical health and are more effective at positively influencing and motivating students. Over the past few years the level of work-related stress, burnout and work absence amongst teachers has increased. Teacher wellbeing has significant implications not only for the individual, but also for their colleagues, students and schools more broadly. It is therefore vital that teachers are equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to proactively manage stress and pressure.

The Positive Group works with schools, universities and businesses globally to translate cutting edge research into practical tools and techniques that positively change the way individuals and teams think, feel and behave. At Positive, we believe that understanding our own thought processes, as well as the processes of others, can confer measurable benefits to our day-to-day lives. Indeed, we aim to create psychologically informed environments to help enhance wellbeing and performance.

At the event you will get to hear about the impact Positive’s teacher programmes have had so far and how cognitive and behavioural tools are being incorporated into different school cultures. You will get exclusive insights into how you can support your own psychological health, wellbeing and performance, and find out about Positive’s brand new open programmes, designed for all school staff, launching with St James’ Senior Girls School in 2020.

We do hope you can join us. Tickets are free but must be booked in advance.
