Mindful Living: 8 Week Mindfulness Program for Children and Adolescents (Windsor Court)
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf”- Jon Kabat Zinn
Mindfulness is a ‘way of being’ or an ‘approach to life’. Mindfulness training helps children and adolescents enhance their attention and focus (Zenner et al; 2014 Zoogman et al. 2015), improve self–control and emotional regulation (Metz et al; 2013), increases empathy, perspective taking and emotional control, and reduces peer-related aggression (Schonert-Reichl et al;2014).
The eight week mindfulness program for children and adolescents is a universal program, delivered in community setting. It is adapted for ages 5-18 years, once a week session over 8 weeks, and home practice is recommended between the sessions. This program is designed age appropriately for children using playful and exploratory activities to reflect on their moment-to-moment experiences.
Other than the 8 sessions, the program also includes three parent sessions so that they are informed and can reinforce the practice at home.
