Join author, psychologist, and consultant Dr. Christopher Willard in this workshop for professionals interested in sharing mindfulness with young clients and their families. Dr. Willard will be offering neuroscience based, creative mindfulness practices to boost learning, mental health and more. We will explore mindfulness through awareness, movement, games, play, and creative activities for all ages.
Learning differences, cultural differences, developmental differences, and more all affect how children learn best, and this workshop explores ways to adapt mindfulness, rather than approach with a one-size fits all approach. We will discuss tailoring techniques to a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, executive function challenges, trauma and stress. Different practices will engage different learning styles through arts, sports, games, music, technology and more, for attention spans ranging from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Explain mindfulness in creative ways that break through resistance and maximize engagement both in and out of the clinical hour
- Use specific strategies to tailor mindfulness to a diagnosis and development
- List dozens proven practices that help children with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other common presenting concern
