Introduction to Mindfulness with Trauma-Impacted Youth
Date: September 9, 2019.
Time and Location: TBD
Course Description: This introductory training is geared toward both clinical/direct service staff and administrative leadership and provides an overview of what mindfulness is, how to and how not to teach it to trauma-impacted youth, the logic model as to why it’s a plausible intervention (with empirical support), and some practice actually meditating. A heavy emphasis is also placed upon relationship mindfulness, which promotes interpersonal safety and receptivity among youth to try, practice, and gain proficiency in mindfulness. This session is a mix between didactic, experiential, and process elements of learning.
- Define mindfulness in an innovative way youth will be receptive to
- Demonstrate at least 2 mindfulness meditations
- Review the logic model for why mindfulness is a plausible intervention for substance abusing, trauma impacted youth
- Present at least 2 concrete skills that promote relational mindfulness
