Hot Off The Press: Psychology Faculty Publish E-Book Chapter on Mindfulness and Meditation

Two of Goucher’s Associate Professors in Psychology, Dr. Jennifer McCabe and Dr. Dara Friedman-Wheeler, recently published a chapter in a new E-Book titled Essays from E-xcellence in Teaching: 2017. The E-Book is a collection of essays, centered around various aspects of and strategies for teaching psychology, originally published in the Society for the Teaching of Psychology’s PsychTeacher listserv, blog, and LinkedIn page.

In their essay, Dr. McCabe and Dr. Friedman-Wheeler write about their experience incorporating the science and practice of mindfulness and meditation into four undergraduate psychology classes. They share their experiences with respect to course design, assignments and activities, and student reactions. They also discuss the results of their more systematic research on the effects of mindfulness in the college classroom.
