The launch of the Mindfulness Initiative's latest publication in the field of education 'Implementing Mindfulness in Schools: An Evidence-Based Guide' took place on the 16th of March 2021.

During the launch webinar, writers Prof. Katherine Weare and Adrian Bethune gave an overview and introduction to this exciting new resource and took questions on it. The webinar was hosted Jamie Bristow, Director of the MI.

The comprehensive guide was written by MI education policy co-leads Professor Katherine Weare and Adrian Bethune after extensive consultation with an expert steering group.

The guide is a key resource for all teachers, educators and SLT members interested in implementing mindfulness within their schools. It covers what mindfulness is (including the neuroscience behind it), the evidence-base and the outcomes of mindfulness in schools for both students and teachers, and the key practical considerations around successfully implementing an ethical and sustainable mindfulness programme within a school setting.
