Clark County Educator Workshop

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, students have experienced more fear, isolation, stress, and anxiety than ever before. Many schools are at a tipping point, with students struggling to regulate their emotions. As part of Nevada State-Wide, our 18-month school and community wellness program, we are hosting a 2-day workshop for educators in Clark Country to address this need. The workshop will teach mind-body medicine techniques to combat stress and build resiliency. Our aim is to provide tools that educators can bring back to their schools to help students of any age.

What will you learn?

This 2-day workshop will provide educators with an overview of how to help students cope with stress and anxiety through the use of mind-body medicine techniques.

During this workshop, you will learn:

  • Practical exercises to build your own resilience and sustainability, while learning how to build these same capacities in your student
  • Techniques for redirecting challenging behaviors and empowering students to self-regulate in stressful situations to improve classroom management
  • Evidence-based mind-body medicine techniques for self-care and undoing the impacts of toxic stress
  • Ways to accelerate students’ social emotional development and build their capacity for rigorous academic achievement  
  • Skills to remove students’ barriers to learning and strengthen your skills for healing along with students so they can achieve their highest academic potential 

What are the benefits of this training?

In addition to learning mind-body medicine techniques and how to use them in your classroom, you’ll also receive benefits, including: 

  • Network with educators from across the district
  • Join an international network of practitioners dedicated to teaching their communities techniques to cope with stress and anxiety 
  • Take advantage of this free learning experience funded by a committed donor
  • Develop a comprehensive knowledge of mind-body medicine techniques to fight burnout, manage challenging student behaviors, cultivate co-regulation, and build resiliency

Participants who complete the training will earn a badge for mastery of the skillset to share with your professional network. You will also earn credits toward your professional learning and licensing requirements.

Is ‘life changing’ an overstatement? I think not. This was, hands down, the best professional training I have done in all my years in the field. It was the perfect balance between science, learning, and experiencing.
