Integrating Yoga/Mindfulness Techniques into Practice with Youth

presented by Sue Tebb, PhD, MSW, RYT500, C-IAYT and Laurie Brockhaus, LCSW, E-RYT500, C-IAYT

Recognizing a mind-body connection is integral to understanding, and responding to, behaviors of youth who experience short-term and chronic stress. This session will introduce yoga/mindfulness practices and techniques that can be easily and effectively integrated into educational settings to offer youth tools for emotional regulation, stress management, and building resilience. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss, observe, and practice movement, postures, breath work, meditation, and relaxation techniques, offered in a trauma-sensitive manner, that they can immediately put into practice in their work with youth. 

About the Presenters: Sue Tebb, PhD, MSW, RYT500, C-IAYT, involved with yoga since the 1970's, but seriously living it for the past ten years, is a social work professor who received her yoga teacher training from East-West Natural Healing and the Himalayan Institute. Strongly believing in the mind/body connection, she is a LifeForce Yoga Therapist Level II, a Certified Integrative Yoga for Seniors Instructor, a Certified Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist and a Relax and Renew Restorative Teacher Level 1.

Laurie Brockhaus, LCSW, E-RYT500, C-IAYT, has been working with youth since 2000, as a classroom teacher and social worker in school and community organizations. Laurie has integrated her knowledge and experiences in yoga, education, and social work practice with youth in co-creating and managing The Oxygen Project, a nonprofit that brings consistent yoga/mindfulness programming to youth in schools and community organizations in underserved areas. She also coordinates yoga teacher training programs at Urban Breath Yoga, instructs yoga trainings relevant to mental health and social service, and is an adjunct faculty member in St. Louis University's School of Social Work. 


PM SESSION          12:30-3:45             3.0 CEHs

Self-Care for School Social Workers: It’s Not Just a To-Do List!

presented by Courtney Schaefer, MSW, LCSW, RPT-S

Ask any school social worker about her job and answer will include two common themes – she loves her students and the job is overwhelming and stressful; research supports this. Social workers tend to have a higher job satisfaction rate but also have one of the highest levels of burnout.  This workshop will provide school social workers with a practical approach to self-care which is manageable.  A review of current research will be provided along with resources.  There will also be guided self-care activities and guidance on how to start a peer support group.  It is the goal of this session that participants will walk away with enough resources and supports to develop and implement their own personal self-care plan.

About the presenter: Courtney Schaefer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) Supervisor and a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S) who has worked with children and families for over twenty years.  Courtney currently has a private practice, Family and Play, LLC and works as a School Social Worker for Special School District in Jennings, MO. Courtney’s specific areas of expertise include issues related to trauma, attachment, death and dying, ADD/ADHD, divorce, school and learning issues, behavior and social skills.
