Practicing mindfulness enables us to feel calm, be more focused and experience a sense of ease in our body and mind.

During this presentation, participants will be introduced to:

  • basics of mindfulness and the effect of mindfulness training on emotional regulation and stress reduction;
  • the purpose and value of neurobiology and the body’s stress response to strong emotions and its role in preparing a child for life; and
  • simple mindfulness strategies to build resiliency.
