Has your school used S-CCATE?
CEI's School Compassionate Culture Analytical Tool for Educators (S-CCATE) can help you, and now is a great time to start.
We all are continuing to experience an unprecedented amount of stress and trauma as the cumulative stress of the past 18 months is exacerbated by recent spikes in COVID-19 illnesses and death and concerns over unvaccinated children. Even as schools are preparing to re-open and as many are celebrating the freedom and joy from the safety of vaccination for adults, so much uncertainty remains. What can you do to alleviate the stress and trauma that you, and your students, are experiencing? Read about suggestions from Dr. Kelly McGonigal and Dr. Mason as she reflects on stress and vitality.
Recent research on the neurobiology of stress and trauma also suggests that increasing compassion in school cultures can enhance self-care, well-being, learning, and resiliency. What better time to begin measuring and improving your school's compassionate culture than now, as the school year kicks off?
S-CCATE — the School Compassionate Culture Analytical Tool for Educators, created by CEI, can help you do just that. This month's featured article provides a deeper dive into S-CCATE and how you and your school can start using it.
