Self-Compassion=Student Success AND Well-Being!
This past week I attended an excellent training on Self-Compassion sponsored by the Greater Good Science Center at U.C. Berkeley. The practice of self-compassion may be even more beneficial than Mindfulness. Teens who cultivated a greater sense of inner kindness and sympathy toward the difficulties in their life were the least stressed, least depressed, and most satisfied with their lives.

Mindfulness Group for Students
Embrace 2017! Get a fresh start with this new semester and come to the Mindfulness Group. The Mindfulness Group for Students meets every Tuesday immediately after school until 4:00 p.m. in the Faculty Dining Room. This group is facilitated by School Nurse Dvora Citron, RN, MS. This weekly opportunity is a time during which students can learn and practice mindfulness skills and also cultivate supportive strategies for coping with stress. In addition to silent periods of sitting, we also learn and discuss adaptive coping mechanisms for dealing with the every-day stress of high-school life, as well as other issues including chronic disease, pain, and anxiety. For more information or questions, please contact Acalanes School Nurse, Dvora Citron, @ email@example.com
