The most complete and readable mindfulness primer for educators and anyone who works with high school kids and young adults.

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), as pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn and others, is now being successfully applied in myriad areas of human activity—most recently, education. It's no surprise that psychologists and educators have found that mindfulness-based practices improve attention and performance and reduce stress in the classroom and in other school-based activities. This book is a thorough yet readable introduction to mindfulness and its applications and a primer for educators on how it can be used with students, with numerous practical exercises.
The authors cover such topics as
• cultivating resilience and managing stress
• emotional development
• communication and relationships
• mindful use of technology
• mindfulness for enhancing creativity
• mindfulness and sports
• teaching with attention
• working with resistance
• managing personal stress in the classroom
• and much more
