Mindfulness work with children and young people - Part 2

This workshop follows on from the introductory training course and is designed for those who have attended the initial course and have begun to use techniques in their work or are considering the development of a Mindfulness programme.

This course will offer guidance on which techniques to use and how to develop and deliver a programme.

Key learning:

  • Explore how stress arises and how it affects us both physically and psychologically
  • Develop our understanding of what we mean by stress reduction
  • Consider a sample programme - based on the work of the Royal Blind School
  • Develop your own programme - consider who it is for, what techniques to use and how to deliver it
  • An opportunity to familiarise yourself with the exercises through practice.

Who should attend

Teachers, youth workers, nursery staff, social care staff and all others currently working with children - who have attended the initial course.
