dc.description.abstractThis study examines the effect of a six-­?week mindfulness group on anxiety and coping skills in fifth grade elementary school students. Anxiety is a pervasive problem among children and adolescents. Research suggests that early intervention for anxiety is not only effective in childhood, but can produce benefits that last into adulthood. Each group consisted of teaching, discussing, and subsequently practicing mindfulness exercises at home. The group curriculum focused on paying attention to thoughts and feelings in the moment without judgment. Results show a reduction in overall perceived anxiety as well as an impact on the coping strategies used by participants. Feedback from both students and faculty demonstrate the ease and effectiveness by which mindfulness programs can be adapted into elementary schools.
