**This small group counseling program is also available in my group counseling curriculum bundle
The group aims to promote mindfulness in upper elementary-aged students, focusing on mindful breathing, mindful eating, mindful walking, non-judgment/self-acceptance, grounding, patience, letting go, gratitude, and more! Group session activities are based on research-based principles of mindfulness.
From the group rationale: Current research suggests that mindfulness practices in schools result in reductions in behavior problems and aggression and increased happiness and ability to pay attention (Suttie, 2007). Mindfulness also helps students block out distractions (Kerr, et. al, 2011) and improve memory skills (Zeidan, Johnson, Diamond, David, & Goolkasian, 2010). On an individual level, mindfulness can increase positive emotions, while reducing stress (Keng, Smoski, & Robins, 2011).
