The relation between mindfulness and need-supporting schools and classes

We are studying the effects of our whole-school mindfulness-based social-emotional programthe Purple Schools Programon teachers and students. We are interested in how mindfulness and SEL processes in schools support the schools in becoming mindful, need-supporting organizations, and how cultivating mindfulness in school leaders and teachers supports their ability to become need-supportive to themselves, their peers and their students. We are also studying how short cycles of feedback regarding the level of supported needs in the class increases implementation and effectiveness of contemplative pedagogies.
