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 Resource Parents working with system-involved youth, including youth with mental health diagnoses, developmental delays, and/or substance use, in identifying ways to help youth self-regulate if they are dysregulated in their time and work together. Participants will explore multiple mindfulness practices and embody them, as well as experiment with coaching youth in using such practices. Participants will identify practices that will be most helpful and relevant to youth needs 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
