Event description

Description

Mindfulness as an intervention for clinical populations has garnered tremendous research support over the last four decades. Using mindfulness with populations impacted by trauma, let alone youth impacted by trauma, however, is a field still in its infancy. In this daylong training, participants will learn how to define mindfulness in an innovative and relevant way with youth, how to practice mindfulness and other concrete interventions within a trauma-informed lens, and how to foster interpersonal safety and create authentic relationships that promote receptivity.

Learning Objectives:

  • DEFINE mindfulness using metaphor that youth are receptive to

  • IDENTIFY at least 2 therapist/facilitator qualities necessary for promoting interpersonal safety from a trauma-informed framework

  • LEARN 3 mindfulness meditation techniques for use with clients.

  • NAME 4 concrete motivational interviewing skills

  • IDENTIFY 3 strategies for teaching mindfulness to youth impacted by trauma.
