- “Get curious, not furious - replace punitive consequences with mindfulness”
- Create “mindfulness zones” in your classroom
- 10 simple strategies to use during transitions
- Build inner-confidence and improve self-awareness
Feeling like you’ve hit a brick wall when it comes to your most challenging students? You’ve tried every strategy known to man, to little or no avail. The outbursts of anxiety, anger and other means of acting out continue.
What if the “strategy” was a whole lot simpler than you could imagine?
We’ve all heard of mindfulness, but it’s time to learn what that means and how it applies to a classroom setting.
Join mindfulness specialist, James Butler, M.ED., in this exciting, engaging and experiential seminar. Mr. Butler will share the tools he spent 14 years developing and teach you how to integrate a mindfulness routine into your busy school schedule.
Through 1-5 minutes of daily mindfulness practices, your students will be able to name their feelings, and use their words in a clear-minded manner to solve problems. Kids will understand how to make their amygdala less active, and increase the activity of their hippocampus and prefrontal cortex leading to better emotional regulation and behavior in the classroom.
In this seminar, learn how to:
- Create a more responsive and less reactive classroom
- Foster self-compassion and compassion for others
- Develop a mindful classroom that fits into your busy school schedule
- Increase self-management and self-awareness
- Stay calm during stressful teacher moments
- Explain to colleagues the importance of social and emotional growth through mindfulness
Enjoy this experiential workshop to truly transform your classroom and your school!
