One-on-One: A New Approach for Teaching
Mind Matters in Individual Settings
Young people who have experienced trauma and toxic stress, such as child abuse and neglect, often have difficulty regulating their emotional responses when facing challenges in school, life, and relationships. Thus, Dr. Carolyn Curtis developed Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience, a research-based curriculum effective in helping youth overcome adverse and traumatic childhood experiences.
In this webinar, Dr. Carolyn Curtis will discuss her new addendum to the Mind Matterscurriculum. In this guidance, the content of Mind Mattersis divided into 15- to 20-minute segments that can now be taught in one-on-one settings. With these adjustments, the Mind Matters curriculum can be used by home visitors, mentors, and case workers, as well as anyone who works with young people in a one-on-one setting.
Join us in this informative and interactive webinar as we learn about the new, additional approach at implementing the Mind Matters program!
