How Everyday Mindfulness can Build Self-awareness, Self-regulation and Lead to Lifelong Resiliency
Presenter: Anna R. Silberg Ph.D., Co-Founder Reset MindBody, Executive Director of Adolescent and Adult Programming
In this workshop, Dr. Silberg will explore how mindfulness is used as a social-emotional learning curriculum in schools and can be used to teach core social emotional competencies at home. Participants will also learn why mindfulness is critical for developing self-awareness, emotional regulation, impulse control, responsible decision making and the ability to be kind to oneself and others. Dr. Silberg will share how the body reacts to the stress response and how mindfulness can reduce stress and re-regulate the nervous system. Participants will leave with an understanding of how mindfulness can be used as a vehicle for trauma sensitivity.
