November 2, 2017
Jessica Richards, MS, LCSW, IFECMHS, RPF-II
Research informs us that mindfulness has a plethora of physical and mental health benefits, lowering blood pressure, reducing pain, improving sleep, boosting the immune system, increasing grey matter in the brain, reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety, and enhancing concentration and life satisfaction are all potential research-supported benefits of this practice. How can mindfulness help children and families? Mindfulness improves parenting satisfaction, reduces stress, enhances parent-child relationships and supports emotional regulation.
In this introductory training learn more about the benefits of this practice and ways to bring these skills to parents, families, children 2-12 years old and YOURSELF! The MindUp Curriculum: Grades PreK-2: Brain Focused Strategies for Learning and Living by the Hawn Foundation is a required text for the training, as it will inform content, along with other notable research-based findings and practices.
