This program is designed for families and their children (ages 10-12 years) who are struggling. Siblings (ages 10-12 years) may also attend but must register separately. Children (7-9 years) may attend the 1:00 session.
Mindfulness is being aware of thoughts, feelings and sensations that are happening around you at the present time. In children, mindfulness provides many benefits including helping them focus their attention and calm down when anxious. Join Terri McNeely, MEd, BS, of The Child & Family Counseling Center of Westlake, in this interactive session as she teaches caregivers and children ways to calm themselves and become more mindful. She will lead attendees through exercises that can be practiced every day to increase attention, focus and to better regulate emotions.
