Mindfulness: A Tool for Resilience, Strategy and Stamina Created for Providers and Parents
Time & Location
About the Event
Mindfulness builds fortitude and strength in community work for activists, therapists, social workers. Being mindful increases our ability to recover from stress, avoid being reactionary, and ultimately be more present and productive in service of your clients and team. In this workshop we will discover expanded ways of practicing mindfulness on and off the job through breathing, movement, and supportive word phrases you will create for yourself. Clinicians are earning tools for resilience, selfcare and stamina to work with traumatized youth in various settings.
