About this book

This book explores what mindfulness could mean for teachers and educational researchers. Moving beyond popular platitudes about mindfulness, the author provides a conceptual map for understanding the different ways in which mindfulness can be recommended to teachers. Covering the key features of Buddhist, psychological and socially engaged forms of mindfulness, this book critically examines the different ways mindfulness is defined, what problems it is meant to address, and the ways that claims about mindfulness are made. It argues that each approach to mindfulness implies an ideal of what a ‘good teacher’ should be. It will be of interest and value to teacher educators, educational researchers and scholars of mindfulness within education.
