NEW PRESENTATION: A DAY OF WELLNESS: REDUCING ANXIETY, STRESS, BURNOUT & TRAUMA Science, Strategies, Experiences

by Janet Zadina on 10/04/18

Faculty stress is contagious to students!  Teachers and students drop out due to stress.  50% of students have enough anxiety, stress, depression, or trauma to impair learning. Let’s do something that benefits both!

Give your faculty

  • Renewed energy

  • Strategies for reducing anxiety and stress in themselves

  • Awareness of stages of burnout and how to prevent it

  • Strategies for creating a trauma-sensitive classroom

  • Strategies for reducing anxiety, stress, and trauma symptoms in students

  • A day to experience numerous methods scientifically shown to reduce anxiety, stress, depression, and trauma so that they can find an ongoing practice

Proposed Agenda


8:30-11:30 Presentation/Workshop by Dr. Janet Zadina on Anxiety, Stress, Trauma, Brain and Learning:  Science and Strategies

Attendees learn the science and the strategies for creating a trauma-sensitive classroom and for reducing stress in themselves and their students.  They learn the process of burnout and how to prevent it.

11:30-12:30 Lunch

12:30-3:30 Exploring Multiple Methods for Reducing Stress In Faculty And Students And Improving Health

Attendees will explore practices such as yoga, tai chi, and varieties of meditation. Attendees will learn how yoga improves their frontal lobes and reduces anxiety, stress & depression.  They will practice simple movements and poses that they can continue with at home and even teach to students on a “brain break”.

Attendees will learn about how tai chi works to increase concentration, reduce stress, and improve health.  Attendees will practice simple movements that they can continue to use.

Attendees will learn about the many varieties of meditation and practice some of them, including mindfulness, dance, drumming, and visualization.  Meditation is almost a “magic bullet” for reducing anxiety, stress, and trauma symptoms. Many schools are incorporating mindfulness meditation in pre-K through college.  Attendees will learn how to use this in the classroom to improve frontal lobe functions and to reduce anxiety, stress, and trauma symptoms.

All instructors are experienced in working with trauma survivors.  The practitioners are all employed by a hospital wellness center. Dr. Zadina is renowned for her work with trauma survivors and with educators in understanding how to raise achievement using brain research findings.
