This training supports providers working with system-involved youth, including youth with mental health diagnoses, developmental delays, and/or substance use, in identifying ways to help clients self-regulate if they are dysregulated in their work together. Participants will explore multiple mindfulness practices and embody them, as well as experiment with coaching a client in using such practices. Participants will identify practices that will be most helpful and relevant to their clients based on developmental age. Mindfulness practices include: the “brain hand” activity, feelings wheel, body sculpting/power poses, body scan, and more somatic exercises.
- Define self-regulation, dysregulation, and window of tolerance.
- Discuss developmental and mental health factors that may influence how dysregulation manifests.
- Define mindfulness.
- Practice embodying three mindfulness activities throughout the training, and coaching a young person to use one or more activities to regulate.
