This workshop is styled as an introduction into mindfulness for those who seek to counter the stress often found in today’s classrooms. Beginning with a foundation of brain science, we will build a tool kit to counter the toxic stress that students and educators encounter. Participants will learn the basics of mindfulness as a practice, and engage in a healthy dialogue regarding self-care strategies and how to employ behavior guidance techniques centered on the social and emotional needs of children.
