This highly experiential training introduces the concept of grounding and settling practices and how they can be useful with youth. A framework for understanding mindfulness practices based on the physiology of the stress response and the relaxation response is explored.

This training begins to introduce how the relaxation response needs to be cultivated and does not form on its own in response to stress, and how to adapt approaches to youth with trauma exposure.
