A Centre for Research in Human Flourishing seminar

Presented by Professor Patricia Jennings, University of Virginia, USA

This seminar will include an introduction profiling some of the recent research undertaken within the Centre for Research in Human Flourishing regarding the potential benefits and challenges of mindfulness in schools. For this seminar, we will be joined by distinguished professor, Patricia Jennings, who lead the team that developed the CARE programme in US Schools, a mindfulness-based professional development program shown to significantly improve teacher well-being, classroom interactions and student engagement in the largest randomised controlled trial of a mindfulness-based intervention designed specifically to address teacher occupational stress.

Professor Jennings is also a co-author of Flourish: The Compassionate Schools Project curriculum, an integrated health and physical education programme and is a co-investigator on a large randomised controlled trial to evaluate the curriculum’s efficacy. The talk will share theoretical and practical insights for more holistic well-being interventions in educational settings.
