Mind Body Skills

This course will review the polyvagal theory and the psycho-physiology of trauma, so that participants can spend most of the day learning how to apply these theories in their daily work. We will learn how mind/body awareness and practice supports children with self-regulating and creating strong internal and external resources. Experiential activities are practiced to help participants understand how mind body skills become a language for self-awareness, centering, expression and great insight into helping traumatized youth see themselves as survivors. Participants learn how to rate symptoms and reactions while teaching grounding skills. Mind-body skills highlighted in this training include: breath work, mindfulness, movement, focused awareness, compassion, connection, guided imagery and expressive arts.
