Mindfulness Practice in CYC

Mindfulness Practice in CYC

Sat, December 01, 2018

First and third semester Child and Youth Care Practitioner diploma students have been embarking on a weekly mindfulness practice.

By embodying the practice themselves, they are gaining a stronger sense of mind/body connection and the impact it can have on one’s emotions, feelings and thoughts. Insight and exposure to a variety of meditations and mindfulness activities are supporting not only personal growth and self-care but an awareness of alternative ways to support children and youth with their emotional regulation and wellbeing. A significant portion of the students embark on this ‘optional’ practice for the first 10-15 minutes of one of their classes each week. What an incredible demonstration of personal and professional commitment by these students.
