    Topic: Mindfulness practices can provide skills for students to self-regulate and educators to practice self-care. It is a skill that is developed to build resilience and foster emotional regulation. In this session, you will learn to move beyond the basics of mindfulness and toward a process of integrating mindfulness into the existing academic and social emotional classroom curriculum and implement the skills throughout the day to enhance awareness and address the need for building resilience and connection. Learn how mindfulness can be practiced in the general education classroom, special education classroom, counseling group, and individual counseling. Avoid mistakes that are common when implementing mindfulness and why focusing on adult practices are key to creating lasting habits. You will be provided with free resources (strategies that can be used immediately in your practice) for teaching mindfulness, recommended programs and materials, as well as personal practices to integrate mindfulness into your personal and professional life. You will also get a sneak peak of a hybrid online program that reaches educators and their students beginning January 2019.

    Workshop Objectives:

    By participating in this workshop, attendees will:

    1. Discover where mindfulness fits within Positive Behavior Interventions, Social Emotional Learning, and Trauma Informed Practices to meet educators and student needs.
    2. Learn how Social Emotional Learning (outside in) and mindfulness (inside out) are complimentary, provide safety, and create connection.
    3. Build an educator focused perspective of self-care to teach mindfulness (put on your oxygen mask first) and learn how to model self-awareness and self-care skills for students.
