The mindset and skills of SEL are needed now more than ever as we navigate our current world in our own lives and as we educate and support our students, colleagues and our community.

2. Mid-Week Mindfulness 2021 #2

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 1/27/2021

Starting Soon
Each time I ask educators what emotion is most present, the most common answers are "overwhelmed" and "anxious". I then think of Parker Palmer's words - "We teach who we are" and know that now more than ever, we must build into our schedule the habit of mindfulness and self-care. Our ability to maintain steady ground, presence, and calm in the face of uncertainty will have significant impact on our students and be a strong factor in keeping burnout at bay for ourselves. This weekly offering will focus on creating space for sharing together, building community and engaging in mindfulness practices that will sometimes be guided and sometimes be simple moments of silence and then dialogue.

12. Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness in Practice: An Asynchronous Module

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Classroom Teachers, Practitioners of Mindfulness

Dates: 2/5/2021

New
From elementary schools to psychotherapy offices, mindfulness meditation is an increasingly mainstream practice. At the same time, trauma remains a fact of life: the majority of us will experience a traumatic event in our lifetime, and up to 20% of us will develop posttraumatic stress. This means that anywhere mindfulness is being practiced, someone in the room is likely to be struggling with trauma. This raises a crucial question for mindfulness teachers, trauma professionals, and survivors everywhere: How can we minimize the potential dangers of mindfulness for survivors while leveraging its powerful benefits? This asynchronous or self-paced opportunity brings you through this powerful question. The module begins with a webinar to build common understanding on trauma, mindfulness, and meditation and how they intersect in classroom practice. Participants will leave with strategies to create a safe, supportive mindfulness practice in the classroom. Upon completion you will be asked to complete a survey/reflection where you will offer insights and key takeaways as well as certify your completion of all tasks. Once complete, you will receive 3 hours of professional development, documented in MyLearningPlan.
