School-Based Mindfulness Interventions: Assessing Current Studies With Evidence-Based Guidelines

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 4
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. assess the existing scientific literature of mindfulness-based interventions for youth in school settings.
  2. analyze each study with evidence-based guidelines.
  3. evaluate the current limitations of mindfulness-based interventions in schools and apply it to future studies.


Mindfulness-based school interventions (MBSIs) have increasingly been incorporated in classrooms to support students’ mental health and well-being; however, there is little research evaluating the quality of studies. We will provide results from a systematic review that will reveal the strongest evidence with MBSIs across specific outcomes for youth. Practitioners will learn about the existing scientific literature with MBSIs for youth.
