A change season is upon us. Our way of life in Alberta has radically shifted as a result of global events. As the world prepares to awaken, people are left at varying degrees of readiness for the changes needed.

Although we are hardwired to struggle and adapt, finding the energy, motivation and focus to readjust can be challenging both personally and professionally. In this Alberta Teachers' Association public townhall conversation, Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe, renowned psychologist and speaker, will explore where we are, where we go from here and how we can co-create healthier futures.

Collectively, we will explore what changes are the most beneficial for reducing stress and increasing wellness for both at home and in our work. With resiliency and community as the foundation, innovative principles for sustainable recovery and lasting change will be presented. With the help from world renowned experts, Dr. Robyne will lead the conversation that promises to deliver key insights, learnings and practical tools and take questions about how we might steady our steps and prepare us for our personal come-backs during pandemic recovery in Alberta schools and school communities!

Better days are ahead. Let us show you how!
