This edWebinar will teach educators how to help youth change negative behavioral patterns and improve their mental health using an “inside/out” (as opposed to an “outside/in”) approach.
Learn about the connection between mindfulness and self-care, the basics of what mindfulness is and isn’t, the importance of focusing on the adult first, ideas for student and staff buy-in, and simple strategies for using mindfulness in the classroom and schoolwide community.
In this edWebinar, clinical psychologist Dr. Myles Cooley provides guidelines on supporting these students and communicating with them and their parents.
A variety of comorbid mental health conditions occur regularly for many children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Anxiety disorders, anxious symptoms, and developmentally appropriate “worries” present themselves in students with ASD in as many ways as they do in more typically developing children, and they often lead to behavioral challenges for students with ASD.
