What a beautiful morning in Brighton! This is where I started off the day. I was there for the Division for Educational and Child Psychologists (DECP) Conference.
After listening to an inspiring keynote speech, I delivered a workshop on Mindfulness, Educational Psychologists and Whole School Wellbeing. It was a privilege and pleasure to outline a vision for EP implementation of mindfulness-based interventions. A subject based on my experience built up over the years since my doctoral research in this field.
The feedback from the participants was positive. One described the session as *very clear, well based on research without losing the presenter-audience relationship“. Another wrote that it provided the “simple straightforward basics of mindfulness including clear steps of how to implement practice in schools with an informed good foundation.”
I also asked what further training would be important to EPs and discovered an interest in how to implement mindfulness interventions in schools. I have a plan to make that happen. Watch this space.
Warm wishes, Bernadette
