UnstoppableMe Certification: Brain Training and Emotional Resiliency Program for Children STARTS

The UnstoppableMe Certification Program is an 8-week train-the-trainer program designed to certify people to deliver the UnstoppableMe: Brain Training and Emotional Resiliency Program for Children.

About UnstoppableMe: UnstoppableMe is a childhood brain training and emotional resiliency program designed by CAN Coach & Teacher, Jeana Conalas, to teach children (ages 6+) about their brain, mind, body, and feelings. UnstoppableMe teaches children and their caregivers mindfulness strategies, emotional regulation techniques, and ACT-based strategies to build their awareness and emotional resilience in a 6-week program. 

UnstoppableMe shows children another way through difficult emotions and thoughts; so they no longer have to feel held back by their worries. Children and caregivers learn that thoughts are only thoughts, build awareness of when we get caught up in our heads (What If? World), and practice strategies to bring themselves back to the present moment and feel more comfortable in their bodies and minds. Drawing from elements of the Zones of Regulation, Growing Up Mindful, MindUp Curriculum, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy strategies, neuroscience, and mindfulness practices, this program is designed to develop children’s awareness of their emotional states, teach actions they can take to accept or overcome how they feel, and how to apply these strategies to their everyday routines so they can reap the benefits for years to come. Parents participating in the program will develop awareness of their own emotional states as well as their children’s, learn strategies to help their children as well as themselves, develop their own mindfulness practice, and obtain resources and strategies to use at home with the whole family!

This certification program is designed for people who work with children (e.g., coaches, teachers, educators, parents, social workers, psychologists, etc.) and want to teach emotional regulation and resiliency to children and their caregivers. In the certification program, trainers learn the skills, tools, and get access to the materials needed to deliver an UnstoppableMe program for children and their caregivers. With the completion of the course you will be certified by the Centre for Applied Neuroscience to deliver the UnstoppableMe Program.
