USAID Project: Vacation for teachers and harmonious relationships with students
On June 29, 2018, the team of the USAID "TEENS - Accessible and Qualitative Assistance" project organized a webinar regarding psychological support for teachers. An information partner was the Committee for the Protection of the Rights of Children of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The event was conducted by Gila Petrova, a practicing psychologist from Israel.
The goal of the webinar was to provide psychological support to teachers just before their vacation, to help master the techniques of relaxation and rest in order to return to work as effectively as possible, to promote the effective assimilation of knowledge by students, and to create harmonious relations in children's and teachers' groups.
During the webinar, teachers from different parts of Kazakhstan learned how to approach the issue of organizing vacations in order to restore their strength and resources with maximum benefit. Teachers took the opportunity to ask Ms. Petrova questions on the issue and receive answers.
The webinar lasted one hour and thirty-six minutes. 611 users were registered, 156 of whom were teachers who teach various subjects in general schools. All registered participants will receive a video recording and presentations via e-mail, and the materials will be made publicly available on social networks.
The organizers are sure that "thanks to this event, we have succeeded in realizing the task of increasing the psychological literacy of teachers interested in this topic, which, in turn, is an important contribution to the resolution of issues regarding the enhancement of the effectiveness of the pedagogical process, building family and school interaction, preventing teenage suicides and deviant behavior."
According to the feedback from the attendees, the webinar answered many important questions concerning the psychological well-being of teachers, and some participants voiced their to continue their work in webinar format. Here are just some excerpts: "very interesting material for work," "there should be more such webinars," "very useful information," "thanks to the organizers for such a useful webinar."
