Claire Lavelle will join GTCS for a webinar "Transforming the Emotional Load" on 13 May 2020 at 4pm.

In any change to our normal working circumstances, there can be an emotional load that we are left to carry and process. So when the pandemic led to our schools closing and Hubs opening for children of key workers, we may have been left reeling emotionally from the speed and nature of the changes, such as: losing our sense of purpose, our role, our connection with our pupils and families. In this webinar, Claire discusses some of the possible impact of carrying this "emotional load" as we progress through lockdown. She looks at ways to support us in processing some of these challenging emotions, using a range of coaching strategies and approaches, and focuses our attention on where we can create new "stories" for ourselves to bolster our wellbeing.
