15-Oct-2016 Creating the Mindful Classroom

[All: Early Childhood through Middle School]  

 

In this one-day workshop, we'll take the concept of mindfulness from an internal personal practice to developmentally appropriate classroom applications. Because we can’t teach it unless we understand it, we’ll begin the day exploring what mindfulness is and how we can benefit personally as teachers from a mindful outlook. Then, we’ll explore age appropriate techniques to take into the classroom in order to create a mindful space with our students. A truly awake and present classroom benefits both the teacher and the student. So, we’ll delve into awareness exercises involving the breath, the body, and of course, the mind. You’ll have the opportunity to sample pranayama practice (yogic breath work), mindful listening and mindful vision. We’ll also take some time to explore eating mindfully and we’ll even take a mindful walk. By the end of the day, you will have a practical understanding of mindfulness so that you may create and deepen your own mindful practice as well as be prepared to share mindfulness in your classroom.


Date(s): October 15, 2016

Hours: Daily 9:00 am - 3:00 pm; Light snack will be served.

Location: 979 Reseda Dr. Houston, TX 77062

TX CPE credits: 6 hrs.

Cost: Single Registration: $70.00; Group rate (3 or more): $60 per teacher.

10-Nov-2016 Shaping a Montessori Community - Center for Applied Research in Dementia

 

Learn how you can make a difference in the lives of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Our seminars and workshops are beneficial for people who work in direct care with clients and for those who do not but would like to know more about the challenges of coping with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.


Shaping a Montessori Community

This is a 2-day follow-up session designed to enable staff to facilitate the creation of resident-driven communities. The program is based on the demonstration project, “Helen’s Place,” which is currently being replicated in Australia and Europe.


Spaced Retrieval

Spaced Retrieval (SR) is an evidence-based memory intervention that gives individuals practice at successfully recalling information over progressively longer intervals of time. SR utilizes remaining strengths and abilities to enable persons with dementia to learn new procedures to overcome daily challenges, thereby alleviating the symptoms of dementia and reducing caregiver burden. Pioneering research by Dr. Camp and his colleagues forms the basis for two days of intensive training with a major emphasis on visual demonstrations and hands-on exercises to address a wide range of specific challenges.

 

Resident Volunteers

Within every residential community is a potential corps of volunteers. Based on research that focused on training persons with early stage dementia to serve as activity leaders, this half-day presentation provides practical information and ideas for establishing residential communities in which each individual is provided with opportunities to interact socially, pursue personal interests, and use skills and talents.

 

Hiding the Stranger in the Mirror

This entertaining presentation by Dr. Camp is based on his book by the same title. The presentation features a series of case studies compiled by Dr. Camp through decades of applied research and problem-solving “in the trenches.” Professionals and family caregivers will find this presentation useful and empowering.
