This course will help all educators satisfy the new K-12 NY State Mental Health mandate. Have you ever driven somewhere realizing you have no recollection of what happened along the way? Been introduced to someone and moments later can’t recall their name? Where is our mind during moments like these, and how can bringing more awareness to ourselves lead to improvements in well being? Studies show the benefits of mindfulness include stress reduction, emotional balance, and greater focus. This course explores how mindfulness can promote these states, and how it can foster greater resilience, especially during challenging times.

This course is offered for 3 Graduate or In-Service credits (45 hours)
