My name's Lydia - I am a Psychology undergraduate and am
running a mindfulness-based programme for teachers next
month, as part of my dissertation. It's called the Positive
Mindfulness Programme (PMP) and it was developed by my
supervisor, Itai Ivztan. As teachers, I would love if you
could all take part!
Here is a quick brief:
- It's a 4.5 week online programme focusing on 8 positive
aspects of psychology (e.g. self-awareness, self-compassion,
positive emotions) using mindfulness.
- Mindfulness is simply paying attention to the present,
non-judgementally and intentionally; it is increasingly
being practiced in schools such as UCL Academy and Hampton
-The PMP is very practical and known to have a positive
impact; it aims to increase levels of wellbeing.
- Commitment: the main commitment takes about 12 minutes a
day by listening to a topic-related audio file which
includes a daily meditation and a practical daily activity.
There is also a short video that summarises the scientific,
theoretical basis of the topic. You will be asked to
complete online questionnaires before and after the
programme to help with the research.
- Last but not least, all is confidential and data is
I have also attached an invitation letter which provides
further detail. I hope after reading more about the project,
you would like to participate and also, get a few teachers
to participate with you!
If you would like to take part, please post here or email me
I am sending the questionnaires between 7th-14th September,
with the actual running of the programme beginning on 21st
Thanks for your time.
