Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resiliency

Workshop Description

Too many students experience on-going stress, and all too often the underlying trauma of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) takes a toll. Mind Matters gives educators a way to directly help young people who may have experienced trauma in their lives build skills to self-regulate. During the workshop you will learn fun ways to engage young people in learning self-soothing, emotional regulation, and other neurobiological skills for self-management and recovery.


After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe strategies for teaching youth emotional regulation skills.
  • Demonstrate three self-soothing skills.
  • List three key, concrete concepts for trauma recovery that can be taught to youth.
  • Express confidence in helping youth heal from trauma through the application of self-soothing skills.


Professionals working with children, including child-care workers, teachers, aides, counselors, social workers, and other school personnel.
