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 depth at a future Sharon Faye Foundation community lecture.
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.
