Mindfulness in Schools

 

Stress is a natural part of life. Healthy stress can help to motivate us to work hard and accomplish goals. These days, however, many students are weighed down by unhealthy amounts of toxic stress. The expectations placed upon them is more than they have the capacity to cope with, especially considering that they receive little to no training in stress management throughout their education. Toxic stress decreases students' attention, impairs emotional regulation, disturbs sleep and more. 

Educators are also plagued by toxic stress. Anxiety, decreased productivity, frustration, and burnout are becoming common symptoms that drive teachers to leave the profession.

Mindfulness for
Therapists & Social Workers

70% of adults in the United States have experienced some kind of traumatic event in their lives. While some recover from trauma in time with little daily impact, some go on to experience PTSD, drug or alcohol addiction, depression, or anxiety. A growing body of research demonstrates that mindfulness practices can be helpful to those who have experienced trauma, those with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. Plus mindfulness is essential for treatment providers to practice themselves, to help minimize burnout and secondary trauma.
