Dr. Sam Himelstein

 


Mindfulness-based programs for youth and youth who have been impacted by trauma are

Dr. Himelstein will share perspectives on defining and sharing mindfulness in an innovative and relevant way for providers working youth, including the teaching of formal meditation. He will draw upon his research and work in this field to discuss how we can foster interpersonal safety when working with youth, and create authentic relationships that promote receptivity to mindfulness programs.
