Mindfulness Pt. II with Self-Compassion
This is a workshop that is designed for all school faculty involved with teaching mindfulness. We will offer teaching methods and learning about the improtance of teaching self-compassion.
Participants in this program will learn about mindfulness- experience with mindfulness practice is not necessary. Learn about how mindfulness and mindful self-compassion can be used to help students to learn how to cope with stress of school and thrive in the classroom. Learn how to identify students that are having challenges in school, and the techniques to deal with group facilitation or individual conversations with students and parents. Practice a variety of practices including breathing, finding a calm center, turning down the volume of stress, and acceptance as a form of moving forward.
This workshop will emphasize evidence-based practices that help students calm down and experience a sense of quiet in the classroom. We will review these practices and there will be time in the afternoon to practice teaching or facilitating classroom and group practices.
