Keynote Speaker – Dr Helen Street
We are pleased to announce that Dr Helen Street is one of the keynote speakers at the Glasser Australia 2021 Conference: Exploring the Freedom of Choice.
Dr Helen Street keynote presentation is Contextual Wellbeing: the experience of belonging and engagement that arises from connection to healthy social context.
Dr Helen Street is a trailblazer in the development of wellbeing and social and emotional learning programs in education in Australia and the Asia Pacific Region.
Her significant contributions to the field include publications which share innovative, creative perspectives and valuable strategies. Helen has worked with schools and colleges around Australia and internationally in countries including England, Wales, Germany, Hong Kong and Singapore. Helen continues to be a powerful advocate for school contextual reform and the revolutionising of traditional education systems. She writes and speaks regularly in schools and at conferences. She also continues to edit The Positive Times as a free online resource for teachers, and to run the Positive Schools events in a bid to develop a better world for tomorrows schools, today.
Helen is currently an honorary associate professor in the graduate school of education at The University of Western Australia, the chair of Positive Schools with Neil Porter, and most importantly of all, a keen painter, and besotted mother of three beautiful girls. Helen firmly believes that the only way we can sustainably, effectively support youth wellbeing is through the development of contextual wellbeing in our schools and colleges. Our role as educators is not to tell someone how to be well, or to reward them for behaving well. We have to provide young people with a context in which they can flourish.
