Last Friday educator and coach Elena Aguilar gave a training at the COE, with a focus on emotional resiliency and the content of her new book Onward. Although focused on building emotional resiliency in educators, her message and tools could easily apply to anyone in the helping professions. Her book and website contain information on how to identify your core values, the cycle of an emotion, the habits of emotionally resilient educators, and many more helpful ideas on how to cultivate resilience. When we build our own emotional resilience, we can avoid burnout and better help the young people we serve.
