Mindfulness-Based Social Emotional Learning (MBSEL)
Our MBSEL offerings entail two Levels of Professional Development Mindfulness Training for all district employees following the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) protocol. Staff earn professional development points, and through our partnership with International Seminars Group, we offer Continuing Education Credit for Nurses, Counseling, Psychologists, Social Work, Family and Life Therapists and Registered Dietitians.
By equipping our youth, dedicated educators and school staff, and parents with evidence-based Mindfulness and Heartfulness tools that build balance, resilience, compassion, and empathy, we hope to improve both educational and socio-emotional outcomes for children and families.
Broward School's Mindfulness Initiative
AHAM partnered with Inner Explorer, Aetna, and the Broward County Public School District to launch the Superintendent's Mindfulness Initiative, the first district-led program bringing Mindfulness-based SEL tools to adults and youth in South Florida in 2017.
After the tragic event in Parkland, Florida, the initiative has expanded to include the Center for Mind Body Medicine, Wuf Shanti, the Yale Happiness program and other partners, all working toward healing and resilience for all children and adults touched by the school system. Together we intend to build a more conscious and resilient community school culture in Broward county by providing simple Mindfulness tools in the classroom, Mindfulness-based and Mind Body training for BCPS district staff and educators, community workers and parents.
Mind Body Skills Groups (using Center for Mind Body Medicine model)
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Broward County Public Schools and the Children Services Council of Broward County, AHAM is offering Mind Body Skills groups following the trauma-informed healing model created by the Center for Mind Body Medicine (CMBM) as part of the Broward Comprehensive Wellness Program.
