An overview of the research and use of mindfulness with children

Interview-style

  • Course Description

    Well-established as a treatment for a wide range of adult physical and mental health issues, mindfulness is increasingly used with children in mental health and school settings. Researchers have identified mindfulness as one of only two promising long-term treatments for ADD/ADHD and their findings support the use of mindfulness for children and teens dealing with depression, anxiety, and conduct issues. Furthermore, schools implementing mindfulness programs report improved academic performance, reduced behavioral issues, and better school climate. In this workshop, clinicians will learn mindfulness techniques for working with children 5-12 and their families, including options for creating mindfulness-based groups in both school and practice/agency settings.
