Prior to the release of BFF or NRF (Not Really Friends)? A Girls Guide to Happy Friendships in early 2020, author visits will be scheduled for schools, libraries and community groups. Presentations will be interactive and include hands-on activities from the book. (Co-ed option available)
Jessica’s book grew out of her Project Friendships workshops that teach kids the skills that help their relationships thrive. Workshops help kids understand the qualities associated with healthy friendships and navigate their social world with more skill and awareness. Curriculum may be customized to meet the timing and learning needs of the group.
Exploring the Mind – Mindfulness Training for Kids
A growing body of scientific research supports the positive effects of mindfulness on our mental health and well-being. Practicing mindfulness has been shown to improve children’s attention, reduce stress and increase one’s ability to regulate emotions and feel empathy. Sessions teach children about their brains and how to use simple techniques to settle down.
