Teachers Tools For Empowering Youth Program
Mindfulness and Youth Behavior Challenges

In today's world, stress impacts all of us in ways greater than ever before in our history.


Wisdom From The Edge believes that children are the barometer of this reality. Children that internalize stress tend to shut down.


Children who externalize stress exhibit challenging behaviors. In this program, teachers will learn how to correctly assess behaviors through skills such as empathetic listening, social-emotional awareness, emotional regulation, de-escalating techniques, and “nonflict” strategies. 


Teachers will learn how to have effective collaborative conversations with their students and form a partnership that develops hope, agency and success.
