Track on Working with Children, Teens and Their Families
The Children & Teens workshop described above is mandatory for all taking the Children & Teen’s Track.
The focus of the track is on teaching mind-body skills in a child-friendly way, with age appropriate toys and materials that enhance a young person’s understanding of stress reduction and self awareness.
The Children & Teen’s Track includes:
- A manual developed by our senior faculty working with children and teens, with plenty of developmentally-appropriate ideas, worksheets, and didactic information which can be used in private, group, school, community and hospital settings
- Group coaching as well as individual consultation on participants’ specific situations in working with kids, teens, and families
- The opportunity to practice presenting the didactic in children’s terms, along with the adult group “check in”, providing important experience on multi-levels
- Studying the PowerPoints provided ahead of the training
- Basic reading on child psychology/development, if you are not currently working with children/teens
We recommend that you take this track only if the majority of your work is with children/teens. If you work equally with children and adults, we suggest you come to the Advanced Training twice.
When registering, select the Children’s Track or the Adult Track plus the mini-workshop.
