Health and wellness practitioners need to consider clients’ and learners’ overall emotional/mental wellness when designing wellness initiatives, training sessions, or courses. This consideration serves as a guide for setting expectations for participants, clients, and learners. Many years of research on how students’ social emotional state affects their ability to learn and grow will guide this interactive presentation. The session is designed to take participants through the process of how wellness professionals can support wellness initiative participants, clients, and learners individually, socially, and emotionally. We will explore and develop a plan for modifying wellness programs, trainings, or curriculum to support participants by connecting their lived experience through accommodations that support individuals where they are.
Following this session, participants will be able to:
- identify strategies to support wellness participants, clients, and learners individually, socially and emotionally.
- identify ways to modify current initiatives to connect participants with their lived experiences.
- assess strategies to support wellness participants, clients, and learners individually, socially and emotionally.
