Teaching mindfulness skills in a trauma-informed manner workshop

with Trish Magyari, MS, LCPC, NCC, RYT-200
This experiential workshop includes lecture and discussion on applying a trauma-informed theoretical framework to mindfulness meditation and everyday mindfulness skills; a brief review of the evidence-base; experiential practices: trauma-informed meditations (sitting with the breath; mindfulness of difficult emotions; and body scan); and practice teaching brief mindfulness meditations in a trauma-informed manner.
Utilizing a robust evidenced-based and theoretical framework, this practical training will delineate a method of delivering mindfulness meditations, mindfulness practices and mindfulness-based interventions in a trauma-informed manner. General principles will cover the entire process of a mindfulness approach including: creating a trauma-informed environment; introducing mindfulness practices; creating resources and supports for at-risk participants; teaching participants ways to self-regulate during mindfulness meditations; delivering practices; modulating silence; sequencing and choosing meditations; adapting instructions to include trauma-informed options and choices; using invitations rather than directives; the use of ritual and structure; identifying participants who may need additional support; addressing distress; and delivering trauma-informed mindfulness retreats. The guidelines and principals shared will be relevant for general classroom or community groups as well as for trauma-specific groups.
