Solomon’s Song’s Road to Resiliency program that will focus on empowering youth to incorporate healthy mind body practices as a development and healing tool for psychological trauma and stress. Youth ages 12-18 will develop skills for healthy living, develop coping mechanisms, build resiliency, and learn self-care.
Join us on Monday, April 24 from 11:30-3:30 at Winona Senior High for an introduction to the program. This is a hands-on experience to learn the techniques and see if this is a program for you. The program will start September 2017. Transportation will be provided from the middle school to the high school.
This workshop will introduce you to an understanding of the mind-body connection. Participants will learn and experience some practical applications of Mind-Body techniques that have been proven to help with self-care. They are also being widely utilized with both children and adolescents to teach them to cope with, and gain skills of resilience, self-regulation and self-awareness. Mind-Body techniques can be easily used with both children, adolescents, and those who have experienced adverse childhood experiences or are suffering from PTSD. Mind-Body awareness and tools help us to take charge of our lives.
Participants will come away understanding the basic concepts of the mind-body connection as well as having learned several empowering, practical concepts and tools, easy to learn and teach.
Upon completion participants should be able to:
- understand the key elements in childhood vulnerability to stress and trauma
- understand some of the new neuroscience related to brain development as it relates to the mind-body connection and trauma
- better understand how stress and trauma impacts, school success. How it contributes to social problems, impulse control, and self-esteem and how stress management is a key component of preventive mental health and personal well-being as well as a key in self-care for anyone working in stressful environments.
