Mindfulness for Educators

Course Duration:  On Request

This module teaches the concepts of mindfulness and self-development to reduce job stress and burnout.

LSEs need to be resilient in the face of challenges since being stressed can negatively impact the student.

Emerson et al.’s 2017 study on mindfulness found that mindfulness training enabled teachers to regulate their emotions, attention and compassion.

Furthermore, other studies concluded that mindfulness decreases burnout and negative psychological consequences, while at the same time, improving the teacher’s behaviour.
