Mindfulness and meditation has proven to reduce anxiety that is often followed by trauma, and is also associated with enhanced concentration, clear decision-making and reduced aggression. This resource, go.headspace.com/broward, is useful as a tool for changing school wide and classroom climate, as well as an individualized intervention for children and adults. Broward County Public Schools hope to become an early adopter of this tool as we grow into a mindful district.
