Session 1: Introduction: Taking Care of YOU: Self-Care Strategies for Caretaker’s Mind-Body and Heart
The work we do caring for others each day takes a toll. Without established and sustainable self-care practices, we run the risk of health issues, compassion fatigue and burnout, all of which can compromise our ability to provide quality connection. During this first presentation, participants will be introduced to the Five S’s for Stress Reduction. The session will highlight the integration of physical, mental and social/emotional skill building activities that support both learning and health while instilling lifelong habits for well- being. Discussion of neuroscience and stress response will be explored to inform parents on the power of the brain-body connection.
Session 2: Looking through the Eyes of Trauma: Using Mind-Body Interventions to teach Self-Regulation Skills
In this session, participants will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the power of mind-body practices for healing and connection. During this session, we will explore the 6 Domains of complex trauma and practice movement and breath exercises for regaining a sense of safety and stability in the body. Detailed discussion of anxiety, depression and ADHD will be explored as well as how to integrate mindfulness and movement as a powerful tool for healing.
