This workshop will begin with a demonstration of how our body and brain respond to stress using a biofeedback based program.
Using computer based “gaming”, we will practice basic mindfulness techniques, particularly those that have shown to be effective for young people, and demonstrate the effectiveness of these techniques on slowing our breathing, heart rate and other physiological responses that are common when experiencing stress. We will follow the demonstration with a discussion on how the skills learned can be incorporated into our daily (busy!) lives to combat stress and anxiety and help us to lead a mindful lifestyle throughout childhood and into adulthood.
