Mindful Games: Teaching Attention, Balance and Compassion to Youth with Su...
In this workshop presented by renowned mindfulness teacher and author, Susan Kaiser Greenland, you will explore the theory and practice of mindfulness with youth and its specific applications in home, classrooms, and clinical therapy settings. You will learn how to foster six essential life skills – Quieting, Focusing, Seeing, Reframing, Caring and Connecting, using mindful games and activities that have been empirically tested for more than a decade with thousands of children. This workshop will include experiential practice together with demonstrations of lessons, teaching techniques, and group facilitation processes.
Participants will be able to purchase an advance copy of Susan's Kaiser Greenland's latest book, "Mindful Games". Her earlier book, "Mindful Child" was lauded as groundbreaking. Susan was one of the first to apply secular mindfulness to children and educational settings through her Inner Kids Mindful Awareness program.
This workshop is best suited for educators (pre-k through high school), therapists, early childhood professionals and other providers who work with youth. Education scechs and CEUS are pending approval.
As a sequel to this workshop, participants will be invited to register for advanced mindfulness games training--a series of four monthly follow-up sessions to help integrate Mindful Games into actual teaching or therapeutic practice. Susan Kasier Greenland will lead an interactive one-hour phone consultation each month to answer questions and elaborate on key concepts and games presented online. As a participant in this sequel, you will be able to view, at your own pace, and in-between phone sessions, a variety of original videos and print resources that demonstrate the major themes and activities Susan has successfully used. Dates for these monthly sessions will be announced and early bird registration fees collected for the sequel during this workshop.
