“Using Mindfulness-Based Practices With Youth in School Based Settings: An Overview”
Presented by: Mary Carol Dearing, LCSW-R
In this workshop we will explore the rising popularity of mindfulness in popular culture and in the field of mental health. Participants will learn to appreciate the “natural fit” between mindfulness and working with youth, and learn how mindfulness practices can strengthen attention, self-regulation and compassion. Participants will develop an understanding of the different ways they can integrate mindfulness-based interventions in the school setting. A portion of the workshop will be experiential in nature.
Please plan to join us for the Mid-Hudson Region’s 2017 Winter Meeting sponsored by the New York State School Social Workers’ Association. Keep in touch with School Social Workers in our region. Please register to receive 1 CEU and/or the dinner.
“Culturally Competent Work with Unaccompanied Minors in the Educational Milieu”
Presented by: Stephanie Carnes, LL.M., LCSW
Between 2014 and 2015, more than 77,000 unaccompanied children from Central America were released to local communities in the United States, and more children arrive at the border every day. Most of these children are fleeing horrific gang violence, crushing poverty, and a lack of educational opportunities. They endure significant challenges after arriving in the United States, including mental health issues related to traumatic experiences, reunifying with long-separated family members, acclimating to a new culture and language, and obtaining legal relief. This presentation will serve as a lens through which to identify, understand, and mitigate these challenges in the educational setting.
The New York School Social Worker’s Association is pleased to partner with the School Social Work Association of America (SSWAA) to provide CEUs for the 20th National School Social Work Conferencesm which will be held in beautiful San Diego, CA beginning Wednesday, March 22 until Saturday, March 25, 2017. The annual SSWAA Conference is the only national conference devoted exclusively to the School Social Work profession! Although most sessions have been approved, please see SSWAA’s Conference Brochure which will note if a session is “Not approved for NY State CEUs”.
