Dr. Aili Pogust Releases Beyond Just Coping: Pursuing Balance for Educators and Parents
Powerful Book Outlines Four-Step Balancing Process To Facilitate Learning
MARLTON, N.J. – October 3, 2021 – From remote and hybrid classrooms, to increased social media usage, to physically and emotionally spent adults, the constraints on learning have seemingly never been under more pressure. “What does it take for children to want to learn in your presence?” is the question Dr. Aili Pogust, a veteran educator with over 30 years of teaching and consulting experience, asks and answers in her new book for educators and parents.
Beyond Just Coping: Pursuing Balance for Educators and Parents, by Dr. Pogust, explains that the answer, pursuing balance among our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies, creates a presence where students feel emotionally safe to learn.
Pogust’s book includes a four-step process for students in creating, executing and reflecting on personal goals based on what she calls ‘the four bodies.’ The culmination of this process is not the achievement of the goal but what strides have been made towards that goal.
“Many times the journey is more important than the achievement. I want students to understand this,” said Dr. Pogust. “And to facilitate that journey, parents and teachers must learn to make connections to whom they truly are as individuals. This self-awareness creates empathy and a safe environment for others that assists in the learning process.”
Dr. Aili Pogust is an educational trainer, coach and consultant. She offers abundant resources and a practical four-step process to balance each of the four bodies. Her work in education spans elementary grades to graduate school, including 3,000 hours coaching teachers, instructional coaches, supervisors and administrators.
