“Mindfulness can be thought of as moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness, cultivated by paying attention in a specific way, that is, in the present moment, and as non-reactively, as non-judgmentally, and as openheartedly as possible.” (Jon Kabat-Zinn, 2005) The development of mindfulness requires consistent practice, but it has tremendous benefits, including an increased ability to be responsive, rather than reactive, in stressful situations. Research has demonstrated that parenting a child with unique educational needs can cause parents to experience a high level of stress. Additionally, the demands of the special education process can exacerbate this stress. This instructional and experiential presentation will provide parents with tools that can be used to practice mindfulness, both before and during stressful situations.

 

Carla C. Leone is a long-time practitioner of Insight Meditation, a graduate student working towards a Master's in Mindfulness at Lesley University, a trained Children's Yoga instructor, and a trained teacher of MBSR-C (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Children). She applies mindfulness in the school setting as a Teaching Assistant at Brackett Elementary School.
