Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 711

This workshop will introduce techniques utilized by Cedars-Sinai’s school-based Share and Care program, for elementary and secondary school students who have demonstrated challenging behaviors in the classroom. Singing bowls and talking sticks will be incorporated into a process that includes art therapy directives, mindfulness practices, and community building exercises. These creative and mindful strategies can be used in the classroom or in the a group setting as a way of gaining control with the students, while helping them learn to focus, listen, and speak spontaneously from the heart without judgment.

Eligible for 1.5 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
