Walls to present Teaching and Learning Center Professional Development Series event today
Submitted by Teaching and Learning Center
As part of the Teaching and Learning Center's Professional Development series, Kodee Walls, assistant director of Lafene Counseling and Psychological Services, will present "Easy Steps to Integrate Mindfulness for Each Meeting" from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, via Zoom.
Research has consistently demonstrated that mindfulness practices can increase our distress tolerance and improve our perception of challenges. Yet, even with the empirical support, many of us continue to feel at a loss to integrate it into our day-to-day activities. For this session, we will discuss mindfulness's cultural and historical roots as a meditative practice, review the psychological benefits of mindfulness, and identify opportunities to create a norm of mindfulness in the classroom. Participants will also have an opportunity to engage in a mindfulness activity for experiential learning.
The events in the Professional Development Series are free and no registration is required.
