Event details

Mindfulness and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in the Classroom
taught by Molly Lawlor, MA, PhD Candidate


Workshop Description

Mindfulness is commonly defined as an open, non-judgmental awareness to the present moment. This session will introduce participants to mindfulness as well as practices for children within the framework of Social Emotional Learning (SEL). The latest research within the emerging field of mindfulness practice with children will be presented along with considerations for implementation in the classroom context.


Participants will be offered experiential learning with guided mindfulness practice. Concepts will be expanded to discuss practical tools for children and how these can be implemented within the classroom context to support mindful awareness, social emotional competencies, and increased engagement. Through this workshop, participants will: 

1. Become familiar with the CASEL framework for Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), along with the benefits of SEL in the classroom, including student well-being, prosocial behaviour, and academic success

2. Develop knowledge and skills to develop caring environments (e.g. classroom, child care centers and home contexts) – the foundation for SEL

3. Learn about and participate in several mindfulness activities, and gain skills to integrate age-appropriate mindfulness activities for children in the classroom

Molly is the primary author of the Mind-Up program, a trainer for the program and a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia. Her research includes, but is not limited to, the effects of mindfulness-based education on pre- and early adolescents' well-being and social and emotional competence. Specifically, Molly is investigating prosocialness, mindfulness and psychological adjustment in children and adolescents. Currently, Molly is the Director of Curriculum for Taxi Dog Education, a multi-sensory social-emotional learning program. Molly will speak to the role of mindfulness in education, specific to social and emotional learning and self-regulation.
