Meditation and mindfulness are concepts that have been closely examined in recent research. Mindfulness-based interventions have been used to treat individuals experiencing emotional problems, post-traumatic stress disorder, and externalizing problems, among several other disorders. As the research base on meditation and mindfulness continues to grow, the concept of compassion has been included as a supplement to mindfulness-based interventions. Compassion-based interventions have been shown to improve social and emotional skills in adults. Although research on compassion, mindfulness, and meditation seems promising, much of the research focuses on adult populations; very little research has been conducted that shows the effectiveness of compassion-based mindfulness programs with children and adolescents. The current study examines the effectiveness of a compassion and mindfulness-based meditation program, the Compassion Approach to Learning Meditation (CALM), in elementary-age students.
