Mindfulness: Benefits for the Whole Family

Focus is on caregivers of kids and teens in grades K-12.

Have you heard about mindfulness? Ever wondered what it is, and why so many people are talking about it? Interest in mindfulness is growing rapidly in schools, communities, and in health-care settings as an evidence-based way of promoting wellness in children, teens, and adults. It can build empathy and optimism in kids, and enhance school performance by supporting the development of executive function (e.g. attention) and self-regulation skills. It has been shown to reduce stress and enhance well-being in both kids and caregivers. If you are looking for something to support the whole family, come to our session on mindfulness!
