Mind The Teachers

The Mindfulness Foundation Conference Call @ 19:00

2 July 2014 - Mind The Teachers


The Foundation was delighted to host Silke Rupprecht a Ph.D student at Leuphana University in Lueneburg, near Hamburg, Germany whose thesis was supported by the Mind and Life Institute in Massachusetts USA where she spent time as a visiting scholar. Silkes' goal is to research the effects of a MBSR training with teachers on self-regulation and teaching quality.

Thanks to all participants on these calls. Conference calls are helping The Mindfulness Foundation focus our campaign issues relating to Mindfulnes in Schools and its implications for health and education. We are committed to make Mindfulness available to all UK School Children by 2022. A goal that will dramatically reduce mental health problems and improve emotional resilience.
