What will you learn?

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Diploma Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you child mindfulness training techniques to help you and your child do this, and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with  2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Diploma Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
