The course will also demonstrate ways to make relaxation and healthy movement techniques accessible and fun for children.

Objectives: 1) Describe the function of emotions, explain emotions are neither "good" nor "bad." The important thing is how we handle them (healthy coping skills). 2) Define mindfulness and explain how it can impact children's emotional development. 3) Name and describe various age-appropriate mindful and movement-based techniques to help children with self-regulation such as breathing, muscle relaxation, stretching/yoga, etc.
