How Imagination, Mindfulness, and Brain Science can Decrease Distraction Due to Negative Emotions Like Fear, Frustration and Anger
This presentation begins with a clear definition of mindfulness and beginner’s mindset, and why these skills build self-awareness and emotional coping strategies. The fight or flight response will be described using brain science and imagination (Hornet in Your Brain) to learn what is happing in the body when we get reactive. Teachers and parents will better understand why this normal survival response disrupts social interactions, attention and learning, and will able to incorporate basic mindful activities for home and in the classroom to help improve self regulation.

The session will also include a description of a four-step Mindful MEDS outline that could easily be incorporated in the classroom and at home. Because of the playful nature of Hornets and Hippos concepts, kids easily relate to the information; the information is equally applicable for the adults caring for them—yes, we get reactive, too.

(Note, the handouts used in this presentation are from the Hornet and Hippos workbook and are also free downloads on my website. The full workbooks can be purchased on Amazon.com and at the event if this is ok with the event organizers.)

My presentation bridges the gap between social anxiety, depression, and bullying with addiction. 12% of our nation's children live with 1 or more addicted parent (8.9 million children) and over 14 million American adults (ages 12 and older) have an addiction problem. Typically, mental health and addiction are bi-directional, meaning where one is present, the other could be, or will be. This presentation will provide warning signs and how the education professional can support the child, whether depressed, anxious, being bullied, or being the bully. The end of the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss ways that have and have not worked for them, in order to provide insight to their colleagues.
