Paul McGee: “Resilience in the Classroom begins with Resilience in the Classroom”

(Featured resource)Paul McGee’s keynote presentation at the HeadStart Wolverhampton Conference, October 3rd, 2017, explored how ideas from SUMO (Stop, Understand, Move On) can be used by teachers and professionals to support themselves and the young people they work with.

Change Your T-Shirt

‘Change Your T-Shirt’ is one of the resilience strategies in SUMO (Stop Understand Move On), a set of strategies created and expertly shared by Paul McGee. The concept of ‘Change Your T-Shirt’ is that we sometimes need to change our own image of ourselves, and in so doing, we can sometimes change the way other people see us too, and the ways they respond to us.

Hippo Time is OK

The concept of ‘Hippo Time is OK’ is that it is OK sometimes to ‘wallow’ about things that are going wrong in our lives … as long as it’s not for too long!
