Mindfulness for Better Mental Health

Teacher Insights

A study done by researchers of the University of Montreal and other leading universities has shown that mental health difficulties faced by students in online learning at elementary school levels were better dealt with by Philosophy for Children (P4C) intervention while basic psychological needs (BPN) satisfaction was better attained by Mindfulness Based Interventions (MBI). P4C refers to the activities in which children are invited to reflect and share on moral issues and personal values while MBI refers to paying attention to the present moment open-mindedly and without judgment. Both the interventions may be easy to offer online to elementary school students in view of the school closures due to pandemic.
