Forward-Facing(R) for Educators: A Journey to Professional Resilience and Compassion Restoration (Paperback)
The evidence is undeniable: Educators are some of the hardest-working and underappreciated professionals on earth, a truth highlighted by the epidemic proportions of compassion fatigue and burnout occurring across the field.
There's no doubt that educators are purpose-driven, passionate helpers of children, families, and their communities, but with a never-ending list of responsibilities and reductions in many school resources year after year, the suffering and stress involved are fast outweighing the resilience reserves of so many.
With Forward-Facing(R) for Educators: A Journey to Professional Resilience and Compassion Restoration, it doesn't have to be that way.
Co-written by long-time educators Cheryl Fuller and Rebecca Leimkuehler alongside trauma expert and Forward-Facing(R) Institute founder Dr. J. Eric Gentry, this book teaches and validates the distinct challenges of being an educator today, while putting the power of personal healing and restoration firmly back in your hands-where it belongs.
Envision each school day characterized by physical and mental comfort no matter what happens, as you work and live in accordance with your values and goals, and enjoy social connections and self-care practices that nourish, support, and give you a deep sense of peace and fulfillment.
These are the five skills offered by the Forward-Facing(R) process for professional resilience, and they have the potency to transform every facet of your career in education, personal journey, and mission to help children beginning today.
