THURSDAY WORKSHOP (QLD/VIC)
Every Teacher Matters (based on ‘every child matters’)
Marcela Slepica, Director Clinical Services, AccessEAP

The Positive Schools Conference 2019 promotes ‘contextual wellbeing’ to support students to flourish – a framework that highlights the importance of wellbeing ‘from the inside out’. A key component of this model acknowledges the wellbeing support needed for the ‘people’ supporting the students (teaching staff and school leaders). 
This workshop aims to highlight the ways in which an employee assistance program (EAP) can support teaching staff and school leaders to flourish; thereby, modelling wellbeing and creating an environment where students too can flourish. The workshop will set the context with mental health statistics in Australia, highlighting key issues impacting school environments. It will then outline the various forms of EAP support available to staff, for example, counselling, mediation, training - providing examples of work undertaken by AccessEAP in schools. The workshop will close with a discussion on top self-care tips.
