Workshops and Tracks
Adult Track – If the majority of your work is with adults and you plan to teach mind-body skills to adults after the training, choose the adult track. Both group facilitation and didactic during group will be designed for adults. Note that if you select the adult track, you have the option to add a pre-training workshop to your registration (details below).
1a) Adult Track with Cancer Caregivers workshop – This year we are offering a one day pre-training workshop for Cancer Caregivers on January 23 from approximately 9 AM – 2:30 PM. This workshop will help clinicians and patient advocates to develop programs of integrative care for people with cancer and their families. The cost for this workshop is $139 and includes lunch.
1b) Adult track with Children & Teens workshop – If the majority of your work is with adults but you would like to attend the pre-training Children & Teens workshop on January 23 from approximately 9 AM – 2:30 PM, select this option. The workshop will provide an overview of how to work with children and teens using mind-body medicine & includes information on working with traumatized children, children with special needs and with families. The cost for this workshop is $139 and includes lunch and our Children & Teens manual. IMPORTANT: You will participate in the Children & Teens workshop on January 23, but the rest of the training you will participate in our Adult Track.
2) Working with Children, Teens and their Families Track – If the majority of your work is with children and/or teens and you plan to teach mind-body skills to children after the training, you may want to consider choosing the “Working with Children, Teens and their Families” Track. Note that the Children’s & Teen’s track requires participation in a pre-training Children’s Workshop on January 23 from approximately 9 AM – 2:30 PM – the cost for this workshop is $139 and includes lunch & our children’s manual. The focus 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. As you facilitate your group you will present didactic material in an age appropriate manner.
Unless the majority of your work is with children/teens, we recommend that you take the adult track. If you are interested in working with children/teens in the future or want to be able to use the model with your own children, we recommend that you take the Adult Track and add on the Children & Teens workshop or come back to the Advanced Training for a second time and take the Children’s track. This is not a “fun” or “easy” track, and actually requires both extra didactic preparation and facilitating regular adult group.
