Learning to BREATHE – A Comprehensive Training

July 30 – August 2, 2018

Trinity Retreat Center, West Cornwall, CT

offered by

Katherine Crum, Ph.D., and Marjorie James, L.C.S.W.


What is the plan for the workshop?

The three-day, four-night workshop offers the established L2B training protocol in a beautiful rural retreat setting. It combines three training components: a review of the rationale and research informing the structure of L2B (Foundation Training); direct, hands-on practice in teaching the program (Intensive Training); and personal mindfulness practice for teachers.

  • Each day includes personal mindfulness practice using a 4-part model based on MBSR.
  • Day 1 and part of day 2 will present an overview of L2B, emphasizing the theory and research behind the lessons (Foundation).
  • The remaining days will provide participants with the opportunity to “teach” all lessons from the curriculum in small groups and process this experience (Intensive).

This workshop is designed to help you:

  • Summarize the research related to emotion regulation, stress, and psychological wellbeing as it applies to mindfulness-based programs for adolescents.
  • Demonstrate skills for presenting and teaching mindfulness to adolescents in schools or clinical settings utilizing L2B.
  • Experience personal mindfulness practice and its application in daily life.
  • Create networks and share resources for teaching mindfulness effectively in schools and in clinical settings.

Who should participate?

This training is intended for teachers, administrators, clinicians and others working with adolescents who wish to learn an effective, well-researched mindfulness intervention for youth.
