Breath, Resilience, and Radical Self-care: Trauma-Informed Classrooms
This workshop will explore how to empower educators to create mindful classrooms. Founded on Dani Harris and Danielle Rousseau’s experience in education spanning decades, this 60-minute workshop will guide participants through practical and sustainable ways to create trauma-informed breath-based resilience in classrooms. The workshop will provide practical tools for creating trauma-informed and universally inclusive spaces through breath, self-inquiry and radical self-care. Empirical and experiential best practices in the field of mindfulness and education will build everyone’s capacity for self-care and resilience.
Participants will come away with:
- An understanding of youth responses to trauma as well as how stress and trauma impact educators
- Practical ways to access internal resources (breath and movement) in both educators and students
- Best practices in the field of trauma, resilience, and self-care that are founded on a universally inclusive model
