We welcome Cottage School parents and friends to our Mindfulness workshops! Please note that our workshops are for adults only.
Mindfulness is becoming a popular method for use with children to help them to learn to center themselves, become aware of their emotions, and improve focus. Current Cottage School parent, Toni Welsh, will discuss what mindfulness is, what its benefits are, and how to incorporate it into daily life.
Dr. Antoinette Welsh is a licensed psychologist in New Jersey and New York specializing in neuropsychology who works with individuals with traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, memory loss, brain tumors, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, ADHD, and other conditions affecting cognitive functioning. Toni (Dr. Welsh) has an interest in mindfulness, particularly the effects of mindfulness based interventions on cognitive functioning. She has had experience running mindfulness groups with a variety of populations including The Cottage School students and enjoys using mindfulness techniques within her own family.
