Workshop Leader: A/Prof Craig Hassed

In many countries, mindfulness is being widely integrated into educational settings. At Monash University, for example, over 5,000 students and 1,600 staff have mindfulness training on an annual basis.

There are some challenges for successfully introducing mindfulness into educational settings or the home environment. Key principles in doing this well will be explored. It is not just about teaching mindfulness meditation but also relates to managing attention in the classroom and teaching students how to cultivate self-awareness and emotional and attention regulation.

Important points in teaching mindfulness include modelling mindfulness, engaging the student, guiding mindfulness practices, reflective learning based on experience, and integration into curriculum in a cohesive way.
