Mindfulness & Emotions Series for the School

This training helps decrease the physiological, emotional, and behavioral effects of stress by teaching relaxation response exercises, and enhancing self-awareness and emotional intelligence. In addition, teachers report an improvement in classroom effectiveness as teachers understand and experience the skills developed in the program. This improved learning environment decreases the student's stress, which enhances learning. The training encourages the teachers to model this skill for their students.

Moving beyond traditional mindfulness programs that focus primarily on anxiety regulation and cognitive coping strategies, this curriculum integrates concepts from emotion theory, attachment theory, neurobiology, and child emotional development. Educators and students will learn how the experience and expression of emotion can mitigate the stress response. They will also learn how the ways that we block or avoid emotions can worsen the effects of stress and anxiety. Through exercises and case examples, students will increase their awareness of the physical, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive warning signs of stress, and learn ways they can take control of their lives by interrupting the negative stress cycle.
