Thriving Schools: A Mindfulness Introduction with Leading International Trainer & Author Louise Hayes
We are in the midst of a mindfulness revolution. The last two decades of research has shown that mindfulness is beneficial to nearly every aspect of human functioning and now we hear about it everywhere. Research, mostly undertaken with adults, has shown such convincing benefits of mindfulness that many educators are rushing to bring mindfulness interventions into schools.
This brief talk will present mindfulness inside an evidence informed developmental model of psychological flexibility called DNA-V. We will discuss how to incorporate mindfulness in a developmentally considerate way, how to understand the benefits, and to become aware of the risks. Not all mindfulness requires meditation, and not all children are ready for a meditative mindfulness, but a developmental approach allows mindfulness to be tailored to the level of the student and teacher.
This talk will be an introduction to mindfulness for teaches and students. The work will be founded on our psychological flexibility model for youth – DNA-V as published in our highly acclaimed book, “The Thriving Adolescent”.
