Self-Care To Facilitate Teaching The Whole Student
Location: JC Room F
The session seeks to facilitate conversation and reflection around the role self-care plays as faculty seek to teach the "whole" student; recognizing the complexities and challenges that brings. Explore the role of individual well-being as it relates to one's ability to meet the needs of students while managing and attending to one's own professional and personal needs. Through discussion, journaling, and other exercises, participants will be guided to create their own individual definition of personal well-being which will serve as the basis for the design of a personal well-being plan that seeks to promote their "wholeness" as they work to "teach the whole student". Looking at theories of well-being, resilience, and mindfulness, we will work to shift our paradigm around self-care to help us identify the tools and resources that work best for us as individuals and facilitate our ability to thrive, so we can then support and nurture students and help them thrive.
