In this first of four videos, Dr Jean Clinton talks about fostering healthy and emotional development in children and how to deal with those ‘bumps in the road’ and bounce back.
The relationships that children have with the adults around are the most important thing to their development
Children and the Mental Health Crisis: The Role of Meditation
World wide, 10-20% of children and adolescents experience mental health conditions. Half of all mental health conditions start by 14 years of age. Suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15 -19 year-olds.
This is a growing crisis. Teaching meditation at an early age helps build up resilience and diminishes the reaction to stress along with bearing the inner fruits of wholeness. Creating conditions for building resilience in children and young people at an early age contributes to the wholeness of their well-being both now and into the future. We can create those conditions which lead to hope.
DR JEAN CLINTON will speak on RESILIENCE & MEDITATION during the upcoming webinar Children and the Mental Health Crisis: The Role of Meditation on 5th July.
