Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction

Objective of the workshop

The workshop is a platform where students can learn some simple mindfulness practices to cope with stress, particularly the academic stress.


Users of the workshop

This workshop can be delivered 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 can also email us.
