FREE Online CPD Opportunity - Our Own Wellbeing Part 2: Mindfulness is a Superpower
Part four of a series of free online CPD sessions by the Sigma Teaching School Alliance on understanding and supporting children and young people who have experienced trauma.
This is the fourth session
of a free online staff CPD course re understanding and supporting children and young people who have experienced trauma. The previous sessions can be found on the tabs on the left side on our Online Training web page. Subsequent sessions will be added to the Sigma Teaching School website every Tuesday.
This session is the second part of our review of the importance of our own wellbeing and will focus on Mindfulness.
The aims remain the same as for the other sessions in the course:
To provide an overview of the key messages from research regarding what works for children and young people who have experienced trauma.
Provide an opportunity to reflect on your own practice with regard to these key messages (reassurance and ideally identifying actions to further develop your practice).
Signposting to other information.
As with other sessions the approaches and interventions will be evidence-based. Mostly from the fields of psychology and neuroscience. Some of the evidence-based approaches and interventions informed by the research are deceptively simple. They are, however, also enormously powerful in their impact.
What we’ll cover in this session:
What is Mindfulness?
Why should you give Mindfulness a go?
Let’s do some Mindfulness.
