About the Event

Training Description

Mindfulness has been a growing, powerful tool which can facilitate health and healing, but for those who have experienced trauma, it can create discomfort, increase pain and potentially retraumatize system involved youth and/or their families. As such, it is important to understand how to approach providing mindfulness tools in a trauma informed way in order to support improved outcomes for system involved youth and families. In this training, participants will explore, and practice trauma-informed mindfulness tools and learn to offer these tools to support system involved youth and families.

Learning Objective

1. Participants will be able to explain 1 or more unique aspects of trauma-informed mindfulness for use with system involved youth and their families.

2. Participants will be able to identify 3 different trauma-informed mindfulness tools.

3. Participants will be able to identify at least 1 or more trauma-informed mindfulness tools that can be used to support system involved youth and families.
