After over a year of distance and uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, disconnection and autopilot have become means of survival for many, and especially for those in the helping profession and educators. As our world slowly reopens, restructuring how we view and practice reconnection and community are more important now than ever.
As child and adolescent clients and students continue to need support upon reintegration, professionals need accessible skills and resources that support self-care, self-compassion, and felt-safety. In connecting more intentionally with the self, these skills will impact not only professionals, but the children and adolescent clients and students they work with in the form of increased co-regulation, attunement, and interpersonal connection.
Jennifer Cohen Harper, MA, E-RYT, RCYT, is an author and educator who works to support all children and teens in the development of strong inner resources through the tools of yoga and mindfulness. Her goal is to help kids, and those who care for them, thrive in the world regardless of circumstances, and navigate the many challenges they face with a sense of personal power and self-awareness.
