Together with the UConn Neag School of Education, CSCH cohosted a Twitter Chat about teacher stress and teacher well-being on Monday, April 23, 2018. Lisa Sanetti, Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, was the featured guest. Participants were encouraged to watch Dr. Sanetti’s CSCH live talk, ” Teacher Wellbeing: Secure Your Own Oxygen Mask First Before Attending to Others,” (https://youtu.be/0uszD07ce1A) before taking part.
During the chat, Dr. Sanetti discussed why teacher stress is different than the stress from other occupations and wrote about the negative results of that stress. She also answered questions about secondary traumatic stress, the difference between stress and burnout and wrote about the importance of mentorship. The Neag School also shared numerous resources about the topic.
