PSY6069 Mindfulness in Education

The course aims at providing students with the basics of mindfulness practice and understanding of mindfulness. It has a strong experiential component. A standard 8-week programme of “.b Foundations” is embedded in the course. Students will have first-hand experience as the participants of a mindfulness-based intervention, and will be required to do mindfulness practice at home. In addition to the experiential learning, students will learn about the theoretical background of mindfulness and how mindfulness is applied in education settings. Students who completed the course will be eligible to take the “Teach .b” or “Teach Paws b” course organized by the Mindfulness in Schools Project to further develop their practical skills as an emerging mindfulness trainer. This is a course that requires both practical involvement and theoretical understanding.
