Details

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), as pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn and others, is now being successfully applied in myriad areas of human activity—and most recently, in education. It’s no surprise that psychologists and educators have found that mindfulness-based practices improve attention and performance and reduce stress in the classroom and in other school-based activities. This practical guide explains mindfulness and its applications and shows educators how it can be used with students.


Topics include

  • cultivating resilience and managing stress
  • emotional development
  • communication and relationships
  • mindful use of technology
  • mindfulness for enhancing creativity
  • mindfulness and sports
  • teaching with attention
  • working with resistance
  • managing personal stress in the classroom
  • and much more

This book is essential reading for teachers, counselors, parents of children high-school-age and above, and college and graduate students.
