Emily Irwin: Mindfulness and Teens

Friends of Ingraham was pleased to welcome Emily Irwin to our final Family Education Evening of the 2019-20 for a wonderful discussion about mindfulness and teens. We know that schedules prevented some who wanted to attend from participating, so Emily graciously recorded the presentation and shared her slides with us so that we could make them available to the community. Below you’ll find the list of resources Emily shared at the end of her presentation, as well as some that she mentioned during the discussion.

If you have any questions for Emily Irwin, you can contact her at
