Self-Regulation & Mindfulness Practices for System-Involved Youth

Aldea Training Institute

Self-Regulation & Mindfulness Practices for System-Involved Youth

3 CE units

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • 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. 

Facilitators: Kelsey Pacha
