14. Mindfulness for Beginners

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 2/4/2020

Mindfulness has become a bit of a buzzword in education. It has actually been around for thousands of years across many cultures! Through research over the last couple of decades, we have become increasingly aware of the powerful impact of mindfulness on our health and well-being. As we engage in the implementation of social emotional learning and mental health education, mindfulness is a supportive practice that can benefit the entire system. This learning experience will offer educators a foundational understanding of mindfulness and its role in stress management, emotional regulation, and interpersonal skills. It will also address how mindfulness can move us beyond just managing emotions and behaviors and toward cultivation of heartfulness and compassion. This is a hands-on, interactive workshop so come prepared to learn and play.

16. Educator Resilience Through Mindfulness & Community

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 3/3/2020 to 3/18/2020

We do not need the research to tell us that teaching is stressful and burnout is real, although that research does exist! What we may not realize is that the stress we carry, can become a new normal and we are not always aware enough to intervene on our own behalf! This energy we carry not only impacts us, it impacts everyone around us - students, colleagues, our families and our community. We will explore ways we can build our own inner resilience so that we may be our most authentic and effective self. Our focus will be on the utilization of mindfulness, self-care and collaborative, supportive communities to improve our inner and outer world. Additionally, we will discuss how we can carry this forward into our classrooms, schools and personal lives.½½

18. Using Restorative Circles and Play to Build Community & Resilience K-12

Program: School Improvement

Audience: K-12 Educators of all roles

Dates: 3/16/2020

Two of the most effective tools for developing safety, respect, belonging, and voice in your school culture are socially engaged play and universal Tier 1 circles. Circles offer a structured and safe way for all voices to be heard, to practice listening and speaking, to build relational capacity, and explore issues related to equity and our social and emotional well-being. Well led, socially engaged play is vital for students to learn the requisite social and emotional skills of self-regulation, cooperation, teamwork, solving problems, imagination and creativity. In this experiential workshop participants learn fun, engaging and community building games and play activities that can be used in any setting alongside, and/or as part of the restorative circle process. Two texts will be given to each participant as part of this workshop: The Circle Process Guide by Annie O'Shaughnessy and the Games Manual by Howard Moody. Participants will:


•Examine and practice pre-game skills such as getting attention for instructions, choosing teams, laying down ground rules, and giving clear and concise instruction and demonstration.


•Explore the importance of choosing the right games for the population, skills, setting and time frame.


•Examine ways to develop an environment of cooperation versus one of competition.


•Examine and practice stop- process-resume paradigm.


•Play a lot of great games that work to build community, connection and trust.


•Review the elements of the tier 1 circle process and apply learning to engage in a small circle experience.


•Explore when to "circle up"and when not to.


•Experience play as an integral part of a circle process.


•Review the basic principles of restorative practices in schools.


• Develop steps to integrate play and circles into their weekly or daily work as an educator
