Mindfulness: What is It? How Can it Help My Family?


Mindfulness is the ability to be in the present moment (non-judgmentally) with full awareness so we practice being more connected to ourselves, each other, and our world.  Mindfulness can be practiced in infinite, creative ways, by both adults and children.  In addition,mindfulness is used to help people be more in control of their emotions, and manage anxious and sad feelings.  

Please join Dr. Stephanie Samar– a clinical psychologist from theChild Mind Institute– for a workshop on how to bring mindfulness into your home. Dr. Samar will provide advice on how to implement mindfulness techniques and teach them to your children.  She will also help parents recognize the different ways that kids act when they're feeling anxious, and how parents can respond in a calming and helpful way. Parents will learn skills to help children stay calm in stressful situations, block out distractions and live in the moment, as well as how to recognize when children may need extra support. You will engage in easy-to-follow mindfulness exercises and have the opportunity to ask questions on the topic.
