“As educators—before you can help children deal with their

stress you must learn how to cope with your own

stress and the feelings that accompany stress.”

– Dr. Donna Housman

Founder, Housman Institute

Helping Teachers Help Themselves is a comprehensive asynchronous four-course program created specifically to address the emotional wellbeing of pre-school and elementary educators, staff, caregivers and specialists. This comprehensive program provides an understanding of challenging emotions and the skills needed to regulate and manage stress and anxiety.

Best yet, the course is completely self-paced and can be completed on your own schedule.

The program is based on over 35 years of research and practice by Dr. Donna Housman, founder, and CEO of Housman Institute. Dr. Housman has educated thousands of children and trained hundreds of teachers in her flagship evidence-based and research-informed training program, begin to ECSEL, centering on emotional, cognitive, and social early learning from birth. Having worked with educators for so many years, Dr. Housman recognized how critical teachers’ own emotionality, mental health, and well-being is to not only their ability to help support and guide children in the building blocks of emotional intelligence but also to their own professional and personal growth and satisfaction. This program aims to do just that for every educator, whether they are on the front lines in the classroom, working as a specialist or in early intervention roles, or serving as an early childhood caregiver.
