New Delhi: Mom’s Belief and Taarika Foundation are organising a workshop and panel discussion on ‘Mindfulness,’ to be conducted by Dr. Leena Khanzode, Stanford Adjunct Clinical Faculty, and senior clinical leaders from Mom’s Belief. The seven-hour event will teach participants how to manage stress and ‘live in the present,’ with a special focus on children and teenagers. The objective is to enable parents and professionals who work with children to help their kids reduce stress and anxiety, manage their emotions and stay focused. The workshop will take place from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm at the Grand New Delhi, Vasant Kunj, on Saturday, 14th July 2018. Certification is available for professionals.
Stress affects children just as it affects adults. Peer pressure, exam stress, relationships with peers and family members can all be a source of anxiety in children and teenagers. It can have a damaging effect on their health and interfere with schooling and social activity. Mindfulness is a kind of meditation practice that can help kids and teens control their emotions and impulses, eliminate negative thoughts and improve concentration. Professionals, performers, athletes, business people and parents can also benefit from using Mindfulness.
If children and adolescents are taught how to handle their anxiety in a structured and constructive manner, it will benefit them in all aspects of their lives as they grow up. Learn how you and your child can use Mindfulness. Join Mom’s Belief and The Taarika Foundation for a Delhi workshop on Mindfulness, delivered by Stanford Adjunct Lecturer Dr. Leena Khanzode, Adviser and Mentor to Mom’s Belief and the clinical leaders from Mom’s Belief.
