Dis-connect Salto Training Course in Spain
15-24 August 2016 | Sierra de Vicor (Zaragoza), Spain
What is Dis-connect?
Dis-connect is an innovative training for youth workers born out of the reflection on the overuse of technologies between adults and young people and their consequences (multitasking, continuous partial attention, etc.).
It is focused on providing the participants with applicable tools for a more conscious use of technology and a more effective use of time, through specific techniques based primarily on mindfulness.
What is Mindfulness? Why is it useful?
Mindfulness or full consciousness allows to remain in the present moment, with full attention and acceptance of experience through exercises of attention management, observation, meditation, body awareness or sensory perception.
Participants will gain a greater knowledge and awareness of the implications of overuse of technology in their daily lives, and among young people.
They will also be able to acquire basic tools of mindfulness, which may be used for greater individual well-being, self-awareness of the present moment, stress regulation and management of conflict situations, among others. These tools will be useful both personal and professional, young participants can be transmitted in initiatives undertaken by their organizations, especially among those with greater difficulty concentrating, lower academic achievement or special vulnerability, contributing to the development of their resilience, reducing stress, anxiety or impulsivity, and improve your emotional self, empathy and self-control.
