Mindfulness First is delighted to provide you with early information about our latest educator training program for bringing Mindfulness Based Social Emotional Learning to children.
Parenting and teaching are the cornerstones of creating a harmonious society. Educating the next generation is a great responsibility and privilege that holds the promise of being an exceptionally fulfilling role. The reality is, however, that in our school systems, educating youth is a demanding career that requires educators to be pulled in many different directions- educator, counselor, nurse, conflict negotiator, and much more. While many external factors can be out of our control, creating strong internal resources for well-being, stress-reduction and resilience can transform the teaching experience not only for the teacher, but also for their students. To support educators, we are creating an online course: “Foundations for Mindful Educators”.
“Foundations for Mindful Educators” is a new Professional and Personal Development (PPD) program that provides tools for educators to attain greater self-awareness and well-being through internal resources such as emotional resilience and mindfulness. This two part program begins with educators comprehensively attaining these tools for themselves. For the second part, participants will learn how to use this new knowledge to not only understand and support their own students but to also teach lessons in Mindfulness-Based Social-Emotional Learning (MBSEL).
