Stress and trauma impact both our nervous system and how we experience the world. Many of us are unaware of the connection between our mind and body. There are a number of mindfulness and movement interventions that can help de-escalate and regulate the nervous system. Because youth experience a lot of stress, it is imperative that we introduce techniques that build resiliency and help them navigate difficult times.
To be more effective in your work, you need to develop practical interventions to assist youth with self-regulation, focus, de-escalation, community connection and overall well-being. Understanding neuroscience and the impact of stress will help you recognize signs of trauma and intervene effectively with mind-body practices.
This training will help you understand the impact of trauma on both youth and adults. You will practice regulating movement, breath work, relaxation techniques and social emotional activities to help youth build connection and a sense of safety in their body. Learn how these practices enhance emotional, physical and mental health. Be ready to move and be engaged. Walk away with useful strategies for the youth you serve.

Your Competency Focus Area
Each of YIPA’s trainings are designed around a broad framework of eight youth work competencies. The competency focus of this training is BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTION.
Trainings presented in this focus area instill a mindset and proper perspective to understand the connection between emotions and behaviors, model effectively managing your own emotions as you teach youth to manage theirs, and diffuse dysregulated behavior and help youth re-regulate.
