Peace of Mind presents at the Fight for Children Conference
March 15, 2018
If you are an early childhood educator in the DC area, consider taking part in Fight For Children’s conference on Thursday, March 15 entitled: Paradigms of Social-Emotional Learning: Teaching the Whole Child Conference. Peace of Mind’s Jillian Diesner will be offering this workshop:
Mindful Learners – Bringing Mindfulness & Social-Emotional Learning into Early Childhood Classrooms
Participants in this interactive workshop will learn the basic tenets of mindfulness, including some of the current research and proven benefits of mindfulness for children. We will explore several ways to introduce mindfulness to our littlest learners through fun, kid-focused activities. We will discuss the benefits of combining mindfulness with SEL, and will participate in unique hands-on games for the classroom. We will finish with an overview of basic neuroscience geared for early childhood, and discuss how learning about the brain can help us all be more mindful in our everyday lives.
For more information about how to register, please contact: Kim Stevenson at Fight for Children.
