Christa Turksma will present Mindfulness for Teachers: Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education on March 31, 4 pm – 5:15 pm. The talk will be held in room 5604 of Posvar Hall at the University of Pittsburgh. Turksma will detail the CARE Program (Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education) and the research that supports her approach.
The CARE Program is a professional development workshop designed to help teacher-educators reduce stress and enliven their teaching by promoting awareness, compassion, and reflection – the inner resources they need to help students excel. The audience will also participate in short mindfulness activities throughout and at the end of the program.
