Educationalists are increasingly taking an interest in mindfulness to help pupils manage stress, support mental health and promote wellbeing and a positive learning environment. This book builds on the idea that mindfulness can have a positive impact on health, wellbeing and happiness. The authors set out an eight-week evidence-based programme based on stress reduction and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.

It includes a CD that describes a series of simple practices that can be incorporated into lessons and everyday life.  

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
