Introduction to Mindfulness for Educational Psychologists – the workshop

On Friday, 20 September, I ran a workshop for Educational Psychologists (EPs), an introduction to Using Mindfulness-Based Approaches in EP Practice.  This was the third time I ran it this year and again, it was well attended.  The day included:

  • Doing various mindfulness practices, such as the body-scan and 3-minute Breathing Space.
  • Learning about the research background to mindfulness and theory on how it works.
  • Discussing the ways in which mindfulness practices may be used in educational settings, including through the .b programme (developed by the Mindfulness in Schools Project).
  • Developing plans to take this forward in personal and professional lives.

Feedback was positive, and will help shape the next workshop (December 2013).

There was a keen interest in the Mindfulness-Based Attention Training (MBAT) intervention (initially developed as part of the doctoral research and later implemented in a special secondary setting).  The next step is to develop a training programme so that others can run the MBAT intervention in schools.  If you have an interest in this, please contact me.
