Mindfulness-Based Skills to Promote Resilience and Connection

Are you interested in learning how mindfulness practices can impact a child’s ability to deal with stress, anxiety, and trauma? Join Megan Davis on November 19 for “Compassionate Classrooms: Mindfulness-Based Skills to Promote Resilience and Connection.”

About

The goal of this webinar is to introduce mindfulness skills that educators, therapists, and paraprofessionals can integrate into the classroom to build resiliency, distress tolerance, and connection. At the end of this session, you will have gained insight into how simple mindfulness practices directly impact our body’s ability to downregulate in the face of stress, anxiety, and trauma. You will be able to integrate concrete skills into your classroom to support students’, as well as your own, wellness.

Featured Topics

In this webinar, Megan Davis will:

    • define a basic understanding of how stress impacts the nervous system and our ability to self-regulate,
    • demonstrate breathing exercises to calm and balance an activated nervous system,
    • demonstrate mindfulness exercises to regulate and widen the “window of tolerance”,
    • help professionals plan for how and when to integrate skills into a typical school day (virtual or in-person),
    • and provide opportunities to reflect on current self-care practices and how they translate to the culture of classroom wellness.

Registration

This webinar is best suited for K-12 teachers, librarians, school leaders, therapists, and counselors. To register, visit the EdWeb website.
