Abstract: (Show)
"Mindful awareness practices to help teachers recognize and regulate emotional reactivity in their classrooms. Teaching is one of the most rewarding professions, but also one of the most demanding. This book offers simple, ready-to-use, and evidence-proven mindfulness techniques to help educators manage the stresses of the classroom, cultivate an exceptional learning environment, and revitalize both their teaching and their students' knowledge acquisition. Drawing on basic and applied research in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and education, as well as the author's extensive experience as a mindfulness practitioner, teacher, and scientist, it includes exercises in mindfulness, emotional awareness, movement, listening, and more, all with real-time classroom applications."--Publisher's description.
