This course is designed to prepare pre-service teachers by helping them to develop an awareness of the nature of risk and the protective factors that impact learners' social and emotional wellbeing and mental health. Pre-service teachers will participate in a range of learning activities to develop knowledge of the warning signs of mental health problems and/or illness, and the curriculum and pedagogical approaches that promote wellbeing in school communities. Pre-service teachers will learn how to respond to learners showing signs of distress, in particular distress related to bullying or cyberbullying. A health promotion model will be introduced and pre-service teachers will explore practical and innovative ways to promote health-enhancing cultures in their classrooms, through curriculum, and in school communities. Pre-service teachers will explore the implications of educator wellbeing as a precursor to promoting health in school communities.
