The Sharon Faye Foundation in collaboration with the School of Education, Edith Cowan University conducted research in a Western Australian primary school to assess the impact of building Emotional Strength in teachers on teacher burnout, student-teacher engagement and classroom climate.
The results indicated that building Emotional Strength in Teachers reduced teacher burnout; student disaffection, anger, boredom and worry and improved teacher and student engagement.
Despite a small sample size, there were statically significant results on several measures. These results are very encouraging and will be presented in more depth in the next Sharon Faye Foundation lecture scheduled in early 2020.
Emotional Strength will be known as a theory, a world view, a therapy, and a way of responding to the world.
We promote a move away from tending the “ill” towards a culture of wellness. Neuroscience informs us how each person plays a crucial role in the emotional health and wellbeing of others and that it is never too late to change. When one person gets healthy, it has a ripple effect. By creating a wellness culture, everyone can benefit from the wellbeing of most and thrive in a safe, supportive environment.
Emotional Strength has helped people come out of denial to face themselves and take action to address fundamental issues such as addiction, anxiety and depression, disengagement, self-deception, lack of direction and purpose, poor communication, and burnout. It is essential for people to feel again. Feeling is not suffering. It is the essential foundation of a rich, connected and satisfying life.
