Children - The Key to the Mindfulness Multiplier Effect with Rose Pavlov

Rose founded Ivy Child International, a Massachusetts-based non profit, devoted to universal mindfulness education, prioritizing the multicultural needs of children and communities. Ivy Child's culturally-tailored programs are designed to serve diverse educational systems and communities, with a special focus on urban populations. At the heart of Ivy Child’s mission is the belief that when you provide any individual access to learn and practice mindfulness, it not only enhances their direct well-being, it also ripples out to benefit all of those in their outer world (peers, neighbors, family, larger community). This is Ivy Child International’s Mindfulness Multiplier Effect ™ This presentation will focus on the systemic integration of building mindfulness across campuses and communities allowing children to lead as ambassadors to social change.

When: Monday, January 8, 2018, 6:30-8:30 PM

Where: CHA Center for Mindfulness and Compassion, 2nd Floor Community Room, 26 Central Street, Somerville, MA 02143

This monthly continuing education (CE) program is for psychotherapists, health professionals, and other members of the community interested in clinical applications of meditation or mindfulness. Each lecture will address theoretical and clinical issues at the interface of these rich healing traditions, with topics ranging from self-care to trauma to work in schools.

These community evenings offer an opportunity to gather with colleagues in an informal setting to explore the intersection between mindfulness, compassion, and clinical practice. The presenters are notable leaders and speakers in the field who bring with them a wide variety of research and clinical experience.

Each presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion, moderated by Christopher Willard, PsyD, or Meghan Searl, PhD.

2 CE’s are offered each evening to psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and nurses. Please see details at the end of this notice.
