Mindfulness-based approaches help create healthy environments for teaching and learning by supporting teachers and young children in developing a core set of skills and habits of mind: concentration, observation, attention, relaxation, emotional balance and openness. Using experiential mindfulness exercises and reflective practice, teachers can build the capacity in themselves and their children to use and observe the mind in a variety of ways.   Participants in this workshop will learn the science and research behind using mindfulness approaches in education. They will also practice using mindfulness awareness techniques that can be used in the classroom and adapted to a variety of age groups.  

 By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the research behind mindfulness practices
  • Experience several mindfulness-based tools to build provider awareness and emotional balance
  • Discuss ways to integrate these practices into the classroom

Training provided by the Health Federation of Philadelphia's Multiplying Connections Initiative through a grant from Philadelphia Health Management Corporation's  (PHMC) Southeast Regional Key (SERK) Program
