Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. advocate for the use of mindfulness-based interventions in the school setting.
  2. describe the potential benefits of implementing mindfulness-based interventions in the classroom.
  3. evaluate whether mindfulness-based interventions will be appropriate for their setting.

Description

Mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) have been associated with positive outcomes for youth; however, more research is needed evaluating current established mindfulness-based curricula that are frequently used in the schools. Results of a study examining the use of the Mindful Schools curriculum in elementary school classrooms will be presented. Attendees will be able to describe potential benefits of the use of MBIs in the classroom and evaluate whether MBIs are appropriate for their setting.
