Sample text

Asks us to ponder, the purpose of mindfulness is not to eliminate cognitive control—as if a nonverbal organism is the highest example of awareness and mindfulness. Instead it may be useful to teach new forms of thinking that share some features with the awareness of nonhuman animals or infants. It will then be essential to bring this practice and quality of awareness into balance with more typical forms of analytic thinking. Toward creating this balance, we will need to develop child-friendly methods for bringing the state of mind (or modes of thinking) under better contextual control.

What happens, in other words, is no matter where one begins, what ends up on the table is how best to create a more mindful culture. This seems to be such an organic process that it is hard to see how the methods and issues raised in acceptance and mindfulness work can possibly be limited to the clinic. In the abstract, this is no less true in work with adults, but somehow it seems that the cultural issues are often put to one side with adults in a way that one simply cannot do with children. This is but one exciting aspect of acceptance and mindfulness work with children.

Acceptance and Mindfulness Interventions with Youth: An Overview From one point of view, mindfulness and youth seem especially closely linked. In Buddhism, the concept of “beginner’s mind” refers to certain qualities of mindfulness, including openness, receptiveness, and readiness to learn (Goodman, 2005; Kabat-Zinn, 1990). Beginners are more enthusiastic and less cynical about learning; they possess a curiosity that adults seem to have lost and are more receptive to new ideas and experiences (Goodman, 2005).
