Using emotional Intelligence to prevent burnout and increase production

Friday, March 24 • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center - Grand Ballroom A


STRAND: Avoiding Teacher Burnout

Show Details

There is research that studies emotional intelligence (EI) and stress management. Utilizing EI to address stress and burnout has been applied to numerous professions including nurses, law enforcement, and teachers. Teachers experience stress at a higher rate and more frequently than many professions. Teachers experience stress and burnout throughout their tenure. It is hypothesized that teachers with higher emotional intelligence will experience less stress and burnout. Further exploration into emotional intelligence allows teachers to better understand and communicate with students which also reduces stress by discovering the source of a student's behavior. Emotions are data. Emotional data can reveal information about ourselves and others that can be used to address continued exposure to stress. This lecture introduces teachers to the benefits of emotional intelligence through brief participatory exercises.

TAKEAWAYS:
Emotions are information. Emotions drive behavior. Understanding our emotions allows us to address the core issues that can lead to burnout. What are emotions telling you about yourself? What are emotions telling you about the mental health of your students?

SPEAKERS:
Michael McCutcheon (Fitchburg State University: Fitchburg, NH)
