CFR in the Classroom
Center for Resilience teaches social and emotional (SEL) skills through the practice of mindfulness to help students successfully navigate their path to becoming engaged adults, global citizens, and community leaders.
Through our mindfulness-based, social and emotional learning curriculum that is aligned with Common Core State Standards, students learn these valuable skills from the inside out.
Our innovative program is seamlessly integrated into the school curriculum and accessible via the web 24/7. This initiative is sustainable whether in-person or conducted through distance learning to support the development of EQ and lifelong healthy habits.
Lessons can be assigned remotely or shared as a whole class or advisory. We utilize various mindfulness approaches to teach the five core competencies of social and emotional learning, as defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL). Our mindfulness-based curriculum aligns with many of the Common Core Anchor Standards to support the development of these critical skills from the inside out.
Self-regulation, stress management, perseverance, and empathy are the foundations to academic achievement, college & career readiness, and life-long success.
By developing these skills and strategies to manage academic, emotional and social challenges, the ResilientKids Curriculum helps students to successfully navigate their path to becoming engaged adults, global citizens and community leaders.
Research from around the world clearly shows that mindfulness helps to reduce toxic stress, enhance concentration and grit, and develop self-regulation and compassion. These assets help students self-regulate emotions and become ready to learn.
Developing a sustainable program is a customized, multi-year process that includes the following components:
- ResilientKids™ Curriculum Implementation with students
- Live sessions with a CFR instructor
- Classroom teacher training and coaching
- Admin team implementation consulting
- Family engagement sessions

A Taste of Mindfulness
During this customizable session, you and your colleagues will gain an introduction to mindfulness, its benefits, and experiential knowledge through various practices.
This is a great PD workshop or staff meeting topic.
The organization’s annual Training Institute helps teachers manage their own stress and burnout such that they can authentically support their students’ learning of effective mindfulness techniques to strengthen social and emotional development.
Take a deeper dive in this intensive exploration of a customized approach to personal wellness. In its new, fully remote format, you’ll develop your own personal practice and be able to share it with your students/advisees.
This workshop can be done privately at the school or district-level, OR you can join us at our next Training Institute that is open to the public starting in September 2020.
