*Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education (CARE) for Teachers *

CARE for Teachers is a unique program designed to help teachers respond
more pro-actively to school-based stressors by promoting awareness,
presence, compassion, reflection, and inspiration - the inner resources
they need to help students flourish, socially, emotionally, and
academically.The program involves a blend of didactic instruction and
experiential activities, including time for reflection and discussion.

Based upon current research on the neuroscience of emotion, CARE introduces
skills that understanding, recognition and self-regulation.CARE
introduces basic mindfulness activities such as short periods of silent
reflection, and progresses to more complex activities that demonstrate
strategies for addressing many of the challenging situations teachers often
encounter. Teachers learn to bring greater calm, mindfulness and awareness
into the classroom to enhance their relationships with their students,
improve classroom management, and facilitate curricular implementation.
