Stress Reduction for Teens
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Adults who work with pre-adolescent and adolescent youth, including physical education and health education teachers, yoga instructors, school or family counselors, social workers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pediatricians, parents, child psychologists, camp counselors, recreation directors and any others who regularly work with tweens and teens.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  1. Understand how to apply mindfulness from the three C approach of CALM, CENTERED and CONNECTED for a deeper understanding of self and interpersonal relationship skills for teens to reduce stress in their daily lives.
  2. Identify how to teach teens about a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset from a mindfulness lifestyle approach that develops resiliency for them on a daily basis.
  3. Know how to skillfully teach teens that being “stressed out” is not something to be “ashamed” about but that by bringing “small habit” change through mindfulness can reduce stress and increase positive psychology.
  4. Understand the Stress Reduction for Teens Through Mindfulness (SRTM) curriculum and how to assist teens to achieve personal goals through self-discipline and SRTM model methods in four-week sessions.

"The Trauma-Informed Yoga and Mindfulness professional development workshop was extremely informative and engaging. The instructor did a wonderful job of balancing sharing content knowledge, discussion, and physical practice. The tools and trauma informed practices presented will be simple to bring back to my classroom and beneficial for the scholars. The workshop provides both specific strategies and a trauma-informed lens to view your current practices through. I highly recommend attending!
