Workshops and Trainings

Using mindfulness to help our youth cope with the anxiety and uncertainty of this time.


This workshop focuses on using mindfulness-based practices and interventions for managing the anxiety and stress that children and adolescents have experienced over the past year, as well as preparing for the anticipated challenges of returning to school in the fall.

Primary issues to be covered include understanding the fight or flight response and stress cycle, and how to stimulate the related relaxation response. Participants will learn practical skills in educating and supporting youth as well as developing effective tools to reduce their own burnout.

Learning Objectives

-Define mindfulness and how it can be used to manage anxiety and improve emotional regulation.

-Support children, adolescents and caregivers in navigating the stressful and challenging adjustment of the upcoming school year.

-Explore and understand anxiety’s roll as a protective survival response and defense mechanism.

-Implement trauma informed mindfulness to elicit the relaxation response, to process the past year, and ease transition during reopening.

-Identify symptoms of chronic stress and anxiety in children and adolescents, as well as in caregivers, therapists and teachers.

-Integrate practical mindfulness-based tools and techniques to aid in relaxation, focus and concentration.
