General PAC Meeting (Stephanie Curran guest speaker)

February 17, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Have you noticed your children have difficulty paying attention? Or that the levels of stress in children is increasing? And how does this relate to rising rates of bullying, and of anxiety and depression experienced by children in our schools? A growing body of research on mindfulness in school-based contexts is revealing benefits in attention control, self-regulation, and social skills. Mindfulness is a life skill and tool that helps develop self-awareness, improves concentration, decreases stress and anxiety, improves impulse control and cultivates emotion regulation. Stephanie Curran, Acupuncturist and Director of the Elements of Health Centre (and a mom!), is a long-time practitioner of mediation and yoga. She will lead us in a discussion about “Mindfulness in the Classroom”
