Description

First Step to Mindfulness (for Children and Teens)

  • 10am to 11am: For Children aged 7-12 years old

  • 11am to 12pm: For Teens aged 13-16 years old

Do you think the lives of your children are becoming busier and busier? Would you like your children to learn how to:
- Feel calmer and happier
- Slow down
- Cope better with everyday stresses

There is growing evidence that teaching young children and teens mindfulness techniques can achieve all these and more. Introducing young children to some simple practices involving mindfulness can change their lives and yours too. This workshop will use a fun and interactive approach to introduce mindfulness to children and teach them some activities that they can use at home or at school.

Presenters
- Ms Germaine Tan, Senior Clinical Psychologist, Department of Developmental Psychiatry, IMH
- Ms Haanusia Prithivi Raj, Senior Clinical Psychologist, Department of Developmental Psychiatry, IMH
- Ms Liew Shiang Hui, Senior Medical Social Worker, Department of Developmental Psychiatry, IMH


First Step to Mindfulness (for Adults)

  • 1pm - 2pm

  • 2pm - 3pm

Our attention is constantly being drawn away from the present moment by thinking about the past or planning for the future, in turn causing high stress levels and lack of focus. Recent research has shown that individuals can benefit from mindfulness, the simple practice of bringing gentle acceptance to the present moment.

This 1-hour workshop will cover:
1. An introduction to mindfulness and its benefits
2. Tips on how to apply mindfulness techniques and integrate them into everyday life for healthy living

Presenters
- Ms Grace Soo, Senior Clinical Psychologist, Department of Psychology, IMH
- Ms Jeanette Lim, Clinical Psychologist, Department of Psychology, IMH
