Contemplative Practice for Beginning Teachers: Should It Be Included in the Teacher Education Curriculum?


by M. A. Impedovo & Sufiana Khatoon Malik - December 11, 2015

The purpose of this commentary is to consider the role of contemplative practices in the teacher preparation curriculum. Contemplative practices help reduce stress, improve a sense of well-being, and increase coping abilities for professional demands. They can be particularly useful in managing stress in transition situations. We suggest that students preparing to teach be provided specific training on how to use contemplative practices for sustaining positive personal and professional development.
