WEBINAR: Strengthening Social-Emotional Wellbeing for Youth in Care
March 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In today’s uncertain times, many youth experience housing insecurity, unstable or unsafe relationships, and toxic stress. Social and emotional wellbeing can help these young people overcome adversity, heal from trauma, and build resilience, thereby increasing their hopes for the future.
Learning and practicing mindfulness skills can be the pathway to increasing self-regulation, building healthy relationships, and increasing resilience. The question is how can youth move towards social and emotional wellbeing?
During this webinar, we will explore some of the social-emotional needs of youth and how the Milestone Transitional Living Program in Utah utilizes mindfulness skills and the Mind Matters program in group sessions and in group homes.
Join Mina Koplin, Lorri Lake, and Maygan Martinez as they share how they utilize the ACEs questionnaire, how they present Mind Matters content, and how they implement mindfulness skills in sessions with disconnected youth.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify the Social-Emotional needs of youth you serve and learn how mindfulness exercises provide opportunities to set hopeful intentions.
- Reflect on the experience of a TLP grantee and how they use mindfulness skills and Mind Matters in their programs.
- Experience a few self-soothing exercises and ideas in that help build supportive, healthy relationships.
