Mindful activities to support the building of safe relationships

Mindful activities to support the building of safe relationships

Kathy Hegberg
Amanda Petersen

The goal of this workshop is to introduce the FocusedKids program, building healthy brains using mindful activities. Social-emotional health in our children and ourselves begins with compassionate and safe relationships, which leads to healthy brain development and ultimately, life success. The idea of safe relationships is the foundational concept upon which FocusedKids rests. Participants will learn the neuroscience behind this concept and will practice mindful activities to support the building of safe relationships. Simple exercises incorporating the brain, the body, the breath, feelings, and impulse control are practiced and can be easily incorporated into daily life beyond the workshop.
