The Mindful Student Training is a one day training event designed to provide educators with the tools to help students self-regulate, focus and develop awareness for self and others. Learn innovative teaching strategies and effective discipline practices based on the latest research in neuroscience, trauma and positive psychology.
"If we want our children to be healthy and navigate the stressful environment we've created for them, it is imperative that we provide a toolbox. Our children need to be able to calm their thoughts and emotions, spread kindness and embrace mindful practices. Generation Wellness provides outstanding trainings that equip staff to provide these tools." - John Graf, Elementary School Principal
Classrooms across the country are implementing mindfulness into their school day, resulting in improved feelings of community, increased self-regulation, decreased behavioral referrals and an improvement in attendance. Through an awareness of heart, mind and body, students are able to emotionally regulate themselves as well as successfully navigate social interactions. This awareness helps slow the nervous system and allows children/teens to better connect with their feelings and gain self-control.
The Mindful Student™Training is designed for K-12 educators who believe in teaching the whole child. This one day event reveals the blueprint of teaching the power of connection to self and others through fun, engaging activities, "priming the brain" strategies, relaxations, social/emotional learning and more. Learn how to create a community culture, techniques that teach focus and self-regulation, and activities that promote kindness.
After providing a general overview of the latest research in neuroscience, trauma and positive psychology, participants will learn over 30 activities and effective interventions that can be implemented immediately.
You will leave with a binder filled with 30+ activities and important information for implementing school-wide mindfulness. Also, six clock hours are offered.
