As part of our children's mental health initiative, we have been offering the workshop, Guided Imagery for the Classroom: Theory, Benefits and Practical Application. For the past couple years we have traveled to school districts in Northern British Columbia, teaching educators and school staff about the value of guided imagery and how to implement it in the classroom. The course was so well received, that we were inspired to make it available to all teachers, everywhere and through the support of Northern Health and the Imagine Community Grant, this aspiration has become a reality!
We are so excited and pleased to announce the launch of our online Professional Development course, Guided Imagery for the Classroom: Theory, Benefits and Practical Application. This course is based on the original workshop of the same name, with added information, resources and insight. This free course teaches the science and theory of the mindfulness practice of guided imagery, the myriad of its benefits, as well as the whys and hows of implementing it in the classroom. This professional development course is suitable for any and all school staff and takes approximately 1.5 hours to work through, with participants receiving a certificate of completion at the end.
Click on "Online Courses" in the rosywindow.com menu, sign up, and learn about the brilliant mental health tool that is guided imagery. Teach children the value of taking time to be mindful, while instilling healthy mental processes and moving students into a mental and emotional state of optimal learning.
A huge thank you to Northern Health for their support in making this informative professional development course available at no cost. And also, for supplying each school in our local district with two copies of the mental health resource, Imagine If Maybe, You Had a Cloud.
It is our sincere hope that these resources will be put to good use and that staff and students alike, will enjoy the time that they spend with Rosy Window.
