Purpose: The purpose of this study is to introduce a mindfulness training program used in the USA and explore its implications for education in Korea.
Design/methodology/data/approach: The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction(MBSR) program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn was reviewed as a model of the mindfulness-based intervention program in American school system. In the MBSR program, mindfulness is defined as “the awareness that emerges from paying attention purposefully, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”
Findings/Results: The success of the Kabat-Zinn program in providing neurological evidence for the benefits of mindfulness programs in terms of reduction of stress and negative emotions, helped those programs to become popular in the USA. In particular, school curricula have been influenced by mindfulness-based education programs linked to social emotional learning in order to prevent student misbehavior as well as teacher stress.
