MINDFULNESS AND THE ARTS: Creative Strategies to Enhance Attention, Memory, Learning, and Well-Being

TUESDAY, 1 PM - 2 PM EST | OCTOBER 31ST

Presented By: Dr. Kristen Betts, PhD, Drexel University, School of Education

Busyness and stress can affect how the brain processes information and memory. This 3-week workshop provides strategies and activities to increase attention to support metacognition, learning, and well-being through mindfulness, the arts, and creativity. Throughout this workshop, you will be engaged in activities that support brain health and well-being. The first week focuses on mindfulness, the brain, and activities that can decrease stress and support attention and neuroplasticity. The second week expands upon mindfulness and explores how creativity and the arts can support memory, learning, and flourishing. The third week focuses on the integration of mindfulness, creativity, and the arts to support brain health. During the last session, you will have the opportunity to share ways in which you have engaged in mindfulness, creativity, and the arts as part of the workshop.
