Event description

Description

Join world leading expert on Mindfulness for children and young people.


Meet author, Harvard psychologist and mindfulness teacher Dr. Christopher Willard and author, children's therapist and mindfulness teacher Louise Shanagher in this workshop for those interested in sharing mindfulness with children. We will be sharing proven practices that can be used by teachers, therapists, parents and others looking for creative ways to share mindfulness with students. We will explore mindfulness through awareness, movement, games, play, and creative activities for all ages.

This practical workshop will focus on adapting mindfulness for individuals and groups, of all ages and settings. Special emphasis will be placed on getting young people interested. We will also cover strategies for starting mindfulness programs in larger institutions such as schools and hospitals.

Learning differences, cultural differences, developmental differences, not to mention settings like classrooms or offices all affect how children learn best, and this workshop explores ways to adapt mindfulness, rather than approach with a one-size fits all approach. Chris will discuss tailoring techniques to a range of presenting issues, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, executive function challenges, addiction, impulse control difficulties, 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.

There will be a strong emphasis on using creative methods to teach mindfulness and self compassion techniques to children. Louise will demonstrate a variety of fun, engaging, creative mindfulness activities that children will love!
