Mindful Me (Family Super Saturday Webinar)
Intended Audience: Families with young children
All about mindfulness practices and activities for parents and kids: Children reflect the nervous systems of adults around them – including parents, caregivers, teachers, and others. To create mindful environments and mindful interactions, we must first focus on our own experience. Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment with openness and curiosity. It has a variety of research-backed impacts including reduction in stress, emotional regulation, enhanced parent-child interactions, and increased focus. In this session, we will explore techniques, practices, and activities to implement mindfulness for yourself and your children.
This event does NOT provide any formal continuing education credit, such as CPDUs, CE credit, or EI credit. Certificates will not be issued.
