MSSWA Region 1 Fall Meeting

A Mind-Body Approach to Help Students with Anxiety and Sleep

by Kathy Flaminio, MSW


Mind-body practices can help youth reduce anxiety and improve sleep. During this workshop, participants will explore practical research-based interventions to interrupt anxiety, decrease stress/distress during the day, and improve sleep.

Through hands-on learning, reflection, and discussion, participants will experience simple Breathe Move Rest practices that can easily be incorporated into a variety of settings. Walk away from this session with trauma-responsive mind-body tools for yourself and the youth and families you support.  

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand how breathing, regulating movement, and rest practices impact the brain and nervous system, reduce anxiety/stress/distress throughout the day, and improve sleep.

2. Identify calming and releasing breaths to share with youth in short bursts throughout the day to decrease stress and reduce anxiety.

3. Practice regulating movement strategies to enhance self-regulation skills, reduce anxiety, and improve sleep.

4.  Develop simple rest/relaxation activities to reinforce social-emotional learning, provide time for reflection, and build appropriate routines to prepare for a good night’s sleep.
