Mindfulness can be a great tool in helping us become aware of and manage stress. This workshop will help teachers and allied professionals involved with the educational care of students to better understand the science of stress, and how it keeps us in states of worry, anger, or sadness. As adults, it is very important that we have a regular mindfulness practice so that we can model regulation of our nervous systems and emotions for the children we teach and treat, and for their families.
