Mindfulness and Class Resumption

Objective of the resources package

This resources package introduces some brief mindfulness practices to help students readjust during class resumption. Teachers or student guidance personnel can also use the extended activity in the resources package to better understand students’ needs, and render assistance accordingly.

 

Users of the resources package

This package can be used by school teachers or student guidance personnel who have received basic training in mindfulness, such as completing an 8-week MBCT, MBSR or .b Foundations course. They can email the JC PandA team (jcpanda@hku.hk) and obtain the teaching materials after they have submitted the certificate of an 8-week mindfulness course. Teachers or student guidance personnel who receive no prior training in mindfulness but wish to use the resources package can also email us. We are happy to deliver a talk on mindfulness at your school and demonstrate how to utilize this resources package. By then, they can obtain the teaching materials.
