2017 Inner Strength Teacher Training
The Inner Strength Foundation presents its 2017 Teacher Training for the Inner Strength Teen Mindfulness Program (July 11 - August 15) This year's training will be a virtual one for a limited cohort.
The Inner Strength Teen Mindfulness Program is a unique high school program which teaches adolescents powerful and effective focus, stress reduction, and compassion tools, all set in a framework of cultural and physiological development. Over 2000 high school students have already benefited from this program. Learn to each this innovative 12-lesson curriculum and help support teens to become happy, empowered, resilient, and creative adults.
The 2017 Teacher Training will be conducted virtually via teleconference and video resources. It includes video lessons, readings, and live conference call instruction covering all the themes of the classes and teaching methodology. You will develop your understanding of how to teach mindfulness tools with an emphasis on a developmental context. You will learn how to work with difficult classes and what posture or inner attitude is most important for teachers of mindfulness to exemplify and transmit to students. Six 90-minute interactive video conference calls will help you internalize the material you have studied and will give you a chance to ask all your specific questions. Participants will also work with partners via phone calls and will submit written homework. Once school classes begin in the Fall, you have the option to participate in weekly conference calls which are focused on the specific class experience. You will be given support both by Amy Edelstein and by the cohort, which is growing into a dynamic collective of teachers committed to helping teens discover the benefits of mindfulness.
SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR STUDENTS & FULL-TIME PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS.
