Body Connections; Connecting Brain, Breath & Body in your practice with Children and Adolescents

This one day workshop focuses on the use of breath, tapping, movement, mindfulness and sensory based activities to support children, youth & their parents. They are powerful tools to support healthy brain development, regulation of emotions and energy states and connection to self and others. Being connected to self assists children to have a voice; to be in touch with their needs, feelings, experiences and boundaries and to let others know when they need help. The activities can also be applied as targeted interventions to include in your work with traumatised, abused or neglected children & teens. The activities can be used with all children and adolescents, at home, in childcare and schools.
