Aimed at staff working in primary schools who are keen to integrate mindfulness strategies into their work with children, this webinar will introduce participants to a new very exciting approach called the DNA-v

DNA-v Is an easy pathway to help children learn about others, how to build and sustain relationships manager motion engage with adventure challenges and the difficult choices of daily living especially during these very difficult and frightening times.

Dr Mike Scanlan has adapted this course to meet the needs of primary school staff who are striving to help the children they work with manage the increased levels of uncertainty and anxiety that so many children are presenting with, as a result of COVID-19.

Feedback from previous participants

“Before the drastic changes in our school life, I had begun to trial the DNA-V approach with my class to see what outcomes I might have. The children were amazing responsive, and I felt in particular two of my SEND children find it very calming indeed. It was wonderful to see how reflective and observant the children were”

“The course was really insightful and I’m looking forward to seeing how I can implement it in my school, thank you.”
