Executive Function & Mindfulness

{Available via Live Webinar and Face-to-Face Workshop. Online Course coming November 2019.}

Can reflection training be used as a means to improving Executive Function skills?
Learn more about the effects of mindfulness on Executive Function development in this course.

Mindfulness describes a way of thinking involving moment-to-moment attention to your own thoughts, feelings, as well as to your environment. Recently, mindfulness practice has become more common as people incorporate it in their daily lives, including with their children or students. Reflection training involves teaching children to pause, step back, and think before giving a response or action. Research shows that mindfulness and reflection training improves children’s Executive Function, problem-solving skills, memory, impulse control, as well as emotion regulation and pro-social skills such as empathy.

This course will review what is known about Executive Function, mindfulness, and reflection training, including the background and research of this practice, as well as why there is currently so much interest in bringing these approaches  into the classroom.
