Mindfulness can be defined as paying attention in a particular way: On purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally. When children lack social and emotional skills, they act in ways that are challenging for parents, teachers, and caregivers. Mindfulness practices can meet a need for adults and children alike to find physical and mental calm in demanding times and places.
Attendees will learn about mindful breathing, research supporting the practice of mindfulness, various tools for practicing mindfulness with children, and an assortment of children’s books that teach mindfulness and self-regulation.
