Helping children build resiliency is more important than ever. Children are navigating school stress, bullying, worries about safety and belonging, and concerns about body image, to name a few. They are also impacted by parent or caregiver’s distress over money, job, family relationships, illnesses (physical and mental) as well as exposure to video games, social media, and drugs and alcohol. The good news is that the developing brain is shaped by positive experiences as well, so resilience can be taught, modeled, and nurtured. In this course, distinguished panelists will explore models of resiliency in children and adolescence. Attendees will explore how emotional skills, vocabulary, self-regulation, and accurate depiction of mental health struggles in the media can contribute to the health and well-being of our young people.
Mindfulness is paying attention to our present moment experiences with openness, curiosity, and a willing to be with that experience. Mindfulness has scientific evidence showing its positive impact on stress, attention, physical and mental health, and even the development of positive emotions and altruism. Some of the most robust research centers on using mindfulness to help us deal with anxiety and depression. Mindfulness is being widely used by clinicians in both existing programs such as MBCT, ACT, and DBT, as well as informally by clinicians worldwide. This course will explore the science and practice of mindfulness and look at its implications for mental health, as well as discuss how to integrate it into your own professional practice.
