This course promotes calm conversations by structuring activities in three areas (breathing exercises, rhythm routines and drawing/writing) and offering opportunities for children to socially engage through these structured activities in a small group format. The activities can be presented to a child/teen individually, in small group or in a classroom context. Using brain science and focusing on both the inner (sensations, images, feelings) and outer worlds (location, safety of that environment), strategies are thoughtfully introduced to promote self-regulation, positive connection and ultimately academic and social readiness to succeed. Course consists of reading and test. CEs included.
The participant will learn how to:
- Foster self-regulation in child/teen.
- Promote learning readiness.
- Reduce disruptive behaviors.
- Enhance counselor/psychologist/teacher’s role as co-regulator of students.
- Improve child/teen self-confidence.
- Mobilize and motivate the child/teen by offering exercises that teach how to control body sensations, images, thoughts and feelings.
