This is a relevant, important and exciting new course for 2018.

An increasing number of students experience stress, anxiety and confusion in an uncertain and changing world. Research indicates that interventions can change those negative patterns. This is a practical and experiential course with guided practises to enable teachers to relax students.

This course is for staff who work with young people in a pastoral and caring role and help them to make a difference when working with their students.

Application of de-stress approaches with young people
Research indicates that a mindfulness programme can have the potential to allow the students to:

  • cope better with mental stresses linked to being anxious or depressed
  • experience greater well- being (such as being happier and more calm)
  • cope with the everyday stresses and strains of adolescent life (such as exams, relationships, sleep problems and family)
  • improve concentration, retain attention  and focus (in class, in exams,  sport, paying attention and listening)
  • fulfil potential and improve personal, academic learning skills and metacognition
  • be more creative, calm and relaxed

Course Content

  • Effectiveness of mindfulness and the evidence for intervention
  • Mindfulness in schools
  • Neuroscience and the development of the young person
  • Development of mindfulness in a school
  • Guided practise
  • Audio downloads to support guided practise

Benefits of attending the course and outcomes:

  • the course content will examine the causes, symptoms, stress management/ strategies and relaxation
  • participants will benefit by experience, practising skills and techniques to improve decision making choices
  • to reduce levels of stress through mindful relaxation techniques
