CARE for Teachers

Tish Jennings, Christa Turksma

Biography

Christa Turksma is a clinical child psychologist who received her training and advanced academic degree in the Netherlands. Coauthor and codeveloper of the evidence-based Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education (CARE) program, Christa has worked on numerous research and intervention projects that improve the lives of teachers and children.

CARE offers experiences that promote awareness, presence, compassion, reflection, and inspiration—the inner resources needed for teachers to reduce their stress and prevent burnout, and the support students need to flourish socially, emotionally, and academically.

Christa dedicates her time to facilitating CARE workshops and training facilitators in the CARE program throughout the country and abroad. She is also a master trainer of the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) program, another evidence-based curriculum that provides children the skills they need to find positive, nonviolent solutions to social problems.

Christa has trained thousands of teachers in the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, England, and Australia.
