Abstract (Summary)

A Mindfulness Approach to Help Teachers and Staff Provide Support to High School Students is a self-instructional curriculum with the goal of providing a reference guide that can be used to demonstrate to students the care that they need and deserve. Research shows that students’ academic success and emotional well-being improve when students experience positive interactions with high school personnel. This self-instructional PowerPoint design aims to: (a) accommodate high school personnel’s busy schedules; (b) facilitate learning at their own pace; (c) navigate between sections that are beneficial for their needs; and (d) provide a user friendly application of mindfulness in a high school setting. The content includes: definitions, rationale, vignettes, and resources to enhance this learning opportunity.
