Mindful : August 2016
Research gathered from Greater Good Science Ctr. at UC Berkeley, Ctr. for Healthy Minds at U of Wisconsin-Madison, Ctr. for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School, and American Mindfulness Research Association. Mindfulness may help reduce prejudice. In a simulated game, white college students had to decide how much they trusted partners of different races with their money. Students who listened beforehand to a short mindfulness meditation record- ing gave black and white partners roughly the same number of dollars. But a control group that listened to a description of a countryside shared more money with the white players. Mind over Matters— of Discrimination Research- ers asked 18 adult smokers to practice mindful- ness by listen- ing to a guided 20-minute medi- tation on a mobile device every day for two weeks. The participants repor ted fewer cravings for nico- tine immediately after meditating, and smoked fewer cigarettes per day. KICKING THE HABIT Forgiveness has been shown to be a powerful tool for working with trauma, but can it work for victims of bullying? It might, according to a recent study reported in Cog nitive Behaviour Therapy. When victims of bullying “rescripted” their inter- action with a tormentor to feature forgiveness, their negative emotional response decreased. It also decreased when they imagined avoiding the bully, but not if they imagined revenge. Imagining forgiveness was more stressful, though, than either avoiding or revenge. ● Should You Forgive a Bully? Meet Meddy Teddy, The Yoga and Mindful- ness Bear. This flexible, serene-faced stuffed animal was designed to help teach- ers and parents communicate with kids about meditation, mindfulness, and yoga.
