In this workshop, you will explore the theory and practice of mindfulness with youth and its specific applications in home, classrooms, and clinical therapy settings. You will learn how to foster six essential life skills – Quieting, Focusing, Seeing, Reframing, Caring and Connecting, using mindful games and activities that have been empirically tested over more than a decade with thousands of children. In addition to helping youth, mindfulness in school and clinical settings can strengthen and support how you communicate and teach with activities that develop greater mind-body awareness, compassionate life skills, and help you manage stress.
Registration is available online (click here). In the event the workshop is canceled, participants will be notified by Wednesday, the week of the workshop. Registration fees are refunded only if the workshop is canceled; no refund for partial attendance or no-show.
