with Ariel Frager, LPC
Children feel big emotions. Sometimes these big emotions make it hard to be an active participant in school. This 1.5-hour workshop will share mindfulness-based strategies to help students regulate themselves to be ready to learn. The workshop will focus on three big emotions: anger, sadness and anxiety directly pertaining to peer conflict. The workshop will be interactive and engaging through the use of a combination of storytelling, video, small group sharing and role-plays. While this workshop is geared toward school personnel, these strategies can be easily adapted to a variety of settings.
