This mindfulness-based training will offer youth workers culturally relevant and engaging tools, practices, and strategies for supporting marginalized youth and youth of color in healthy social emotional development. We will explore trauma informed mindfulness and mindful movement strategies, exercises, and activities with youth workers in all settings. Participants will experience and learn trauma informed mindfulness practices they can use in their sessions with youth to cultivate resilience and self-regulation. In addition, participants will use compassion and mindfulness practices to navigate the impact of secondary trauma on caregivers and providers.
