DAY 1 BREAKOUT SESSION PREVIEW: Ashley Lodge: Student and staff mental health and wellbeing

We're delighted to welcome Ashley Lodge to our 2019 Pearson International School Leaders Conference. As Pearson's Mental Health and Wellbeing Product Lead and a qualified mindfulness teacher and coach, Ashley will discuss in this breakout session on Day 1 how mindfulness can help with student and staff mental health and wellbeing.

Mindfulness can be an effective tool for building resilience when wellbeing is impacted negatively by stress, anxiety, low mood or other issues. But what exactly is mindfulness and how does it work? This session will examine some of the neuroscience and psychology that underpins mindfulness programmes and provide a basic mindfulness practice so delegates can experience it for themselves.
