Disruptive behavior in the classroom, poor academic performance, out-of-control emotions: if you work with adolescents, you are well-aware of the challenges this age group presents. What if there was a way to calm these students down and arm them with the mindfulness skills needed to really excel in school and life? Written by mindfulness expert and licensed clinical psychologist Patricia C. Broderick, Learning to Breatheis a secular program that tailors the teaching of mindfulness to the developmental needs of adolescents to help them understand their thoughts and feelings and manage distressing emotions. Students will be empowered by learning important mindfulness meditation skills that help them improve emotion regulation, reduce stress, improve overall performance, and, perhaps most importantly, develop their attention. The book also includes a website link with student handouts and homework assignments, making it an ideal classroom tool. The book integrates certain themes of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, into a program that is shorter, more accessible to students, and compatible with school curricula. Students will learn to pay attention in the moment, manage emotions as they are perceived, and gain greater control over their own feelings and actions. These mindfulness practices offer the opportunity to develop hardiness in the face of uncomfortable feelings that otherwise might provoke a response that could be harmful (e.g. acting out by taking drugs, displaying violent behavior or acting in by becoming more depressed). This easy-to-use manual is designed to be used by teachers, but can also be used by any mental health provider teaching adolescents emotion regulation, stress reduction and mindfulness skills. The author is a graduate of the MBSR advanced practicum at the Center for Mindfulness in Massachusetts, led by Jon Kabat-Zinn. She is also a clinical psychologist and a certified school psychologist and counselor for grades K-12. In the book, Broderick calls on her years of experience working with adolescents to outline the best strategies for dealing with disruption in the classroom and emotions that are out of hand. The book is structured around six themes built upon the acronym BREATHE, and each theme has a core message. The program allows for themes to be delivered in 6 longer or 18 shorter sessions, depending upon time and needs of students. The 6 core lessons are: Body, Reflection, Emotions, Attention, Tenderness, and Healthy Mind Habits. Learning to Breathe is the perfect tool for empowering students as they grapple with the psychological tasks of adolescence.

"This book was written as a "how to" guide for setting up your classroom to create ambiance and "funk sway." These ideas will create the atmosphere which decreases behavioral issues. The remainder of the book focuses on dealing with behaviors which occur in the classroom based on the function of the behavior."--Page 4 of cover.

With its growing recognition in education, the importance of Integral Theory is slowly entering mainstream academia through interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research. Addressing the theory’s complexity is important for researchers to learn how to apply it in their classrooms and promote a more inclusive educational environment. Integral Theory and Transdisciplinary Action Research in Education provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of the Integral Theory model and its applications within educational contexts. With a diverse array of research problems approached through an inclusive theory framework and featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as graduate student research, inclusion culture, and organizational learning processes, this publication is ideally designed for graduate students, educators, academicians, researchers, scholars, educational administrators, and policymakers seeking current research on the utility and promise of Integral Theory as a meta-framework for methodological pluralism and transdisciplinary research.
