Trauma-Informed YTT (Guest): Creating and Maintaining Meaningful Boundaries

October 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Boundaries are a life-long practice for each of us—whether it is to protect ourselves, our time, our relationships, our energy, our space, or our resources. Setting boundaries also protects our students and teaches them to set boundaries of their own. Past trauma can get in the way of being able to hold firm boundaries for both teachers and students. At the same time, when we engage in behaviors that run counter to our values, the result is often an internal sense of distress.
In this workshop, neuroscientist and mindfulness instructor Nkechi Njaka teaches us the power of setting boundaries, the energetics of saying “yes” or/or  “no,” and how to stay close to our personal values and needs as teachers. You’ll also learn the neurobiology of stress and trauma responses and the way they impact the practice of boundary-setting and boundary-maintaining. We will also explore the importance of holding boundaries in a trauma-informed classroom, and how to impart the wisdom of boundaries to our students by reminding them that they have power over their own bodies in the classroom. This workshop will include lectures, mindfulness practice, journaling, and somatic practice.
