Growing Up Mindful 10 Week Certification: Live Online Training with Dr. Chris Willard
January 23, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5
Join author, psychologist, consultant (and father) Dr. Christopher Willard in this training for professionals and parents interested in sharing mindfulness with kids and teens. Dr. Willard will be sharing proven practices that can be used by teachers, therapists, and others looking for creative mindfulness practices for all ages. We will explore mindfulness through awareness, movement, games, play, and creative activities for all ages.
Learning differences, cultural differences, developmental differences, and more all affect how children learn best, and this in depth training explores ways to adapt mindfulness, rather than approach with a one-size fits all approach. We will discuss tailoring techniques to a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, executive function challenges, trauma and stress. Different practices will engage different learning styles through arts, sports, games, music, technology and more, for attention spans ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.
