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.
Mindfulness for Teachers: A pilot study to assess effects on stress, burnout, and teaching efficacy. 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.
