These are some useful links from Steven Stanley, relating to his talk:

Mindfulness in education, criminal justice and the workplace

Today I’ve been looking over on mindfulnet as I develop the links and references that we’re including on Social Mindfulness.

I found an extremely helpful resource there about the ways in which mindfulness is currently being used in applied settings. I was familiar with mindful therapies, but hadn’t realised how much mindfulness was being implemented in other settings beyond mental health.

Mindfulnet includes great summaries on mindfulness in education, the criminal justice system, and the workplace.  Hopefully we’ll be able to include posts about these kinds of applications in future on Social Mindfulness.
