Amy Saltzman, MD – Sharing Mindfulness with Young People
This workshop offers an overview of the 8-week, age-adapted mindfulness-based Still Quiet Place curriculum. During the video Saltzman teaches practices that you can bring home to your family, or use in your work and play with children and adolescents. These practices will allow you, and the young people in your life, to experience the Still Quiet Place within. You will gain an understanding of how observing thoughts and feelings from this place of stillness and quietness improves attention, decreases anxiety, supports healthy choices, and enhances compassion for oneself and others. The workshop includes adaptations for family, school, community, and therapeutic settings. Additionally, Saltzman reviews the research regarding benefits of offering mindfulness to children, parents, families, therapists, teachers, and schools.
