Rising from rejection: How educators can build school belonging in students
October 6 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
The Program for International Student Assessment reports that 1 in 3 students don’t feel like they belong in their school. In the lead up to World Mental Health Day, Professor Kip Williams will present the negative psychological effects of rejection and ostracism in schools. He will reveal some key findings on what rejection can lead to and what happens to an individual once they are excluded.
This presentation will be followed by an esteemed panel of experts as they explore strategies that build a sense of belonging in students.
All registrations will be given access (in your reminder email) to the screening of ‘Reject: A documentary film’ on Vimeo between 29 September and 6 October to view prior to attending this event.
