KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DR. WILLIAM BLAKE, DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
We know that mindfulness is helpful to kids in self-regulation, but is this enough? How can we teach mindfulness as a foundation for helping kids to address the challenges they face every day, including disagreements with friends, sibling rivalry, academics, bias, bullying, and injustice? How can we teach mindfulness-based social and emotional learning as a means for kids to achieve their own goals in life and to work for the changes they’d like to see in the world? How can you develop your own mindfulenss practice for self-care and contribute to a more inclusive, supportive school community?
If these questions resonate with you, please join us for a morning of learning, conversation, sharing of ideas, and building community.
