This training supports Resource Parents working with system-involved youth, including youth with mental health diagnoses, developmental delays, and/or substance use, in identifying ways to help youth self-regulate if they are dysregulated in their time and work together. Participants will explore multiple mindfulness practices and embody them, as well as experiment with coaching youth in using such practices. Participants will identify practices that will be most helpful and relevant to youth needs based on developmental age. Mindfulness practices include: the “brainhand” activity, feelings wheel, body sculpting/power poses, body scan, and more somatic exercises.
