Leading Mindfully for Healthy and Successful Schools
8 July | 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm
Schools are franticly busy places. Increasingly, we are expected to do more to improve mental health and wellbeing and academic outcomes for students. However, the debate about wellbeing and school improvement is often unhelpfully polarised. Attachment informed and relational approaches are pitted against structures and systems that hold people to account. Aurora will argue that it is possible to take a ‘middle way’. She draws on the findings of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Cognitive Science, and the practice of Mindfulness to explore the interconnection between relationships, feeling safe and learning and suggests by prioritising this we can also get excellent results.
