We hope you will join us for our upcoming T4 event with Dr Mandie Shean and Veronika Sutton.

Mandie is a registered teacher and psychologist. She has over 20 years experience teaching in challenging, remote, and international primary schools. She has also worked as a chaplain and psychologist in public schools, and children’s pastor at a large metropolitan church. Mandie has a Masters in Community Psychology and PhD which focused on resilience in adolescence. She currently works in the School of Education at Edith Cowan University as a researcher/lecturer and at Catholic Education Western Australia as a consultant psychologist.

In this presentation Dr Shean will discuss resilience in the current context of the COVID pandemic. She will provide practical strategies to help build coping skills and self-worth in young people. This will include ways of working with emotions, building problem solving skills, and rethinking how we validate ourselves. These strategies are useful for teachers in building their own resilience as well.

Veronika Sutton will share with us how Woodvale Secondary College has embedded Positive Education in a cost effective and sustainable way in a government school.

Veronika has worked as Associate Principal at Woodvale Secondary College for twelve years.  Her passion for social and emotional wellbeing was fortified when she managed the school priority of Social and Emotional Wellbeing of staff and students through two school Business Plan cycles from 2014 – 2020.  During that time Veronika embedded positive psychology initiatives through the college and commenced a PhD measuring the effectiveness of implementing Positive Education in a government secondary metropolitan high school in a cost effective and sustainable way

This event will be of interest to parents, teachers, and support staff.  Pre-service teachers are also very welcome to join us.

Afternoon tea will be served - we hope you'll join us to connect, learn and share.
