DescriptionJoin Amy Levine, MSW, LCSW, to discover how Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and principles of mindfulness positively impact the developing brains of children and adolescents. Participants of this seminar will review research findings and receive more than 35 practical mindfulness activities and 20 resources that may immediately be applied to practice with children and adolescents to treat depression and anxiety, as well as help manage anger and reduce disruptive behaviors. Using experiential exercises, video clips, and discussion, participants will be introduced to mindfulness strategies targeting a wide variety of problematic symptoms. The training will equip participants with a “mindfulness practice toolbox” to enhance their practice with children, adolescents, and their families.
This presenter is being supported through the partnership between the University of North Carolina School of Social Work and the NC AHEC Program.
