Ross writes for various educational journals including TES, Headteacher Update and Primary Times and has written four books on children’s mental health and performance. His latest book is out in August 2019. At today’s Conference, Ross will address delegates on the issue of staff wellbeing. Ross will identify stress flashpoints, offer a measurement tool to quantify current stress levels and provide short- and long-term strategies to improve wellbeing. However, Ross believes that a belief in self whilst being connected, are core to sustainable wellbeing. Ross will also talk about how being too resilient, may in fact, be a precursor for stress. Ross not only speaks from a position of authority, but has had his own wellbeing challenges which involved scarring, physical disability, and a series of panic attacks over recent years. This unique viewpoint helps him connect with his audiences and their wellbeing challenges.
