PHASE Asia Pacific is a conference for all educators focussed on physical education, health, athletics, sports, and experiential learning.  The conference allows participants to learn from leading authorities in their respective fields as well as from practitioner presenters, to network with fellow educators, and to access good practice and resources in multiple formats.

PHASE has evolved from the Asia Pacific Physical Education Conference (APPEC) which was a dedicated Physical Education & Wellness event for the Asia Pacific region starting in 2015.

With depression rates on the rise in adolescences, there is a desperate need for wellness programs and initiatives in schools all over the world. The pressures our students face culturally, from parents and peers is overwhelming and as educators, we need to step in if we want our students to have every opportunity to thrive in their lives. There are many different frameworks currently available for schools to use that will provide students with the necessary skills they need to build resiliency, a growth mindset and get them to a place where they can experience flow and flourish. The research is abundant but where to start and how to start can be very overwhelming. As Physical Educators, our expertise is often looked to or our passion for health education puts us in a position where we need / want to effect change in our schools.

In this session, Alison will discuss current research and literature that is gaining popularity around Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, and Growth Mindset. Participants will discover some simple steps that you can do to bring either small or large scale changes into your schools. An example would be training in mindfulness and how to get your staff on board for teaching it in their classes.
