Reducing Stress and Promoting Well-being and Compassion: Social and Emotional Learning and Mindfulness-Based Education Approaches with Children and Teachers

Recent years have seen increased attention to fostering the development of the "whole child" in schools, including their social and emotional health and well-being. This presentation will describe the latest research on the ways in which children’s social and emotional learning (SEL) and development can be nurtured in classrooms, with a focus on recent work in the field of mindfulness-based education approaches. Classroom practices that promote SEL and mindfulness in will be described, including a description of the program "MindUP" - a mindfulness-based education program for children in grades K-8 that is being widely implemented in BC.  Discussion of recent research and practice for promoting teachers' social and emotional competence and well-being through mindfulness-based practices will also be included. Opportunity for discussion and experiential learning will be woven throughout.
