Mindfulness Training for Teachers: Documenting Individual and Classroom Impacts in a Systematic Program of Research
Abstract: Over the past 2 decades, research on mindfulness in education for students and teachers has increased rapidly. In this talk, I outline a 10-year, mixed-methods program of research on the teacher and classroom impacts on the Mindfulness-Based Emotional Balance program for teachers. Presentation of results from a recently completed randomized-controlled trial for middle school teachers on the West Coast will be highlighted in the class. Questions about the next generation of scholarship in this area, with an emphasis on the need for school-wide programs, will be discussed.

For over a decade, IHDSC and faculty from seven NYU academic units have trained incoming and advanced doctoral students from diverse backgrounds to become outstanding researchers in the educational sciences.
In addition to funding doctoral students from the seven affiliated departments across NYU the program includes a proseminar series. The series brings together presentations by both NYU and external experts who will help to introduce, reintroduce, and consolidate students' advanced understanding of the concepts of internal, external, construct, and statistical validity.
The Institute of Human Development and Social Change hosts a variety of events including the IES-PIRT Proseminar Series, annual research conferences, and workshops.
