Mental Health Pro-D 2020-21


FISA Mental Health and Wellness Webinar Series – 

The FISA Mental Health Coordinators, Michelle Hussey and Jamie Morris, are pleased to partner with Dr. Shirley Giroux to provide an introduction to Compassionate Systems Leadership (CSL) through a two-part webinar series. The first of which will take place on Dec. 7th from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (PST) with the date of the second webinar to be scheduled after Winter Break. CSL is one of the featured strategies in the MoE’s Key Principles and Strategies for K-12 Mental Health Promotion in Schools 2021. CLS encourages a deliberate focus on creating and nourishing a school culture where everyone feels safe, connected, and respected. As part of the Dec. 7th webinar participants will be introduced to the core leadership principles of CLS, experience firsthand two of the foundational practices, and explore ways to apply CLS in their own lives and in their school communities. Dr. Giroux is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with many years of experience working in independent schools. She is a certified CSL Master Practitioner (one of eight in Canada). Learn more about Dr. Giroux’s work with CSL here.  Both webinars will be recorded and available for viewing in the FISA Video Gallery.
