Mind Body Skills for Emotional Regulation (2nd Edition) [Franklin University]

Course Access: 365 days access
Course Overview

Mind Body Skills for Emotional Regulation reviews the polyvagal theory and the
psychophysiology of trauma, so that participants can understand behavior as a
language for what is happening in the body. Participants will spend most of
their time learning how to apply these theories in their daily work by directly
experiencing the practices in their own bodies. Participants will also learn
how to understand the power of mind/body awareness in supporting children and
adolescents with self-regulating and creating strong internal and external
resources. Experiential activities are practiced to help participants embody
how to stimulate the social engagement network through establishing safety,
human contact, muscles of the face, throat, and ears, movement, and sensory
tools. Mind body skills are essential to the healing of trauma, but they also offer critical support for caregivers when navigating the daily experience
of stress.  This course supports
classroom teachers, therapists, administrators, and anyone who has ever felt
puzzled about how to help youth regulate their own behavior. Mind body skills
highlighted in this training include breath work, mindfulness, movement, focused
awareness, compassion, connection, guided imagery, and expressive arts.
