Training Description

Learning to tell our stories, show and share emotions is important for the healing process. Often, young people are not given space to show adults their feelings about events that happen in their early life, leading to disconnection, distrust and trauma. Mindfulness practices can support system-involved youth to build awareness of emotions and how to express and process them in healthy ways. In this training, we will explore different ways to integrate narrative practice in the exploration of identity, and empathy building for system-involved youth.

Learning Objectives

● Participants will acquire at least 2 mindfulness and narrative practices which can be used to foster healing and connection with system-involved youth.

● Participants will acquire 3 tools for bringing narrative practices into interactions with system-involved youth and families.

● Participants will acquire 3 mindfulness practices for supporting emotional awareness and resilience with youth.
