Mindfulness Research

Researchers find that those children who participated in the .b mindfulness programme reported fewer depressive symptoms, lower stress and greater wellbeing than the young people in the control group.

Approximately 80% of the young people said they continued using practices taught in MiSP’s mindfulness curriculum after completing the nine week programme. Teachers and schools also rated the curriculum as worthwhile and very enjoyable to learn and teach.

Despite the crucial role of teachers in fostering children’s academic learning and social–emotional well-being, addressing teacher stress in the classroom remains a significant challenge in education.

This study reports results from a randomized controlled pilot trial of a modified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course (mMBSR) adapted specifically for teachers.

Conference 2013

Jon Kabat-ZinnThank you to the nearly 700 attendees who joined us for last year’s Mindfulness in Schools Conference on March 27th in London.

We are especially grateful for Jon Kabat-Zinn’s generous contribution of time as he shared his inspiring vision for mindfulness in education. It was wonderful to hear teachers’ and students’ experiences with the .b programmes in the classroom, the research base, and the political context.
