In this webinar, recorded May 12 2020, Amanda Lynch, author of The Mindfulness Room, and Mack McLellan, Jr., talk about self-care, mindfulness, and restorative justice—for children and adults alike.

“Guided by her own experience teaching mindfulness, Lynch has written a lovely guide to mindfulness for children. Beautifully illustrated and cleverly written, The Mindfulness Room helps both children and adults see the value of teaching mindfulness skills… This is a great resource for anyone who is interested in sharing some peace and calm with stressed-out kids.”—Holly Rogers, Duke University psychiatrist
