Participant(s):

Moderator:

Mary Woerner

Mindfulness research suggests that cultivating a mindfulness practice is related to physical and mental health benefits for all ages and backgrounds. Specifically, mindfulness programs in schools can lead to improved attention, self-regulation, and empathy in children. This skill-based workshop will demonstrate activities to teach formal and informal mindfulness practice, including games and counseling strategies. Participants will learn to use the activities in schools with diverse populations, as well as to enhance their personal lives.
