A Presentation by Mark Greenberg, PhD
Benefits attributed to mindfulness practices have rapidly increased clinical interest in using these techniques with teachers, parents, and youth. Can contemplative practices deepen the social, emotional, and cognitive competence of adults and children? How can social work researchers and practitioners assess whether mindfulness-based therapies are effective in nurturing healthy development? What implications do mindfulness practices have for school-based social workers seeking to create healthy school environments?
Mark Greenberg, PhD holds the Bennett Endowed Chair in Prevention Research at Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development, and he is the Founding Director of the Prevention Research Center for the Promotion of Human Development.
