.b, pronounced [dot-be], is the UK’s leading mindfulness curriculum for 11-18 year olds in schools. 
.b stands for ‘stop and be’, a simple practice at the heart of this course. Each .b lesson is expertly crafted for use in a classroom style setting to teach a distinct mindfulness skill. The .b materials are designed to engage even the most sceptical of young minds.
 
.b is a fun, engaging and useful 8/9 week mindfulness course for young people, adapted from the adult courses Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy. It has been evaluated positively by the University of Cambridge and Oxford Brookes, and can be used in a wide range of contexts and age ranges.
What are .b’s objectives?
.b aims to give students mindfulness as a life skill. Students use it …
• to feel happier, calmer and more fulfilled
• to get on better with others
• to help them concentrate and learn better
• to help cope with stress and anxiety
• to perform better music and sport.

What .b ISN’T:
  • Boring
  • Hippy dippy
  • Yoga
  • Religious
  • Therapy
What are the Potential Benefits?
Thousands of research studies have evaluated the effects of mindfulness training in many contexts, and they identify consistent potential benefits to adults’ psychological health and wellbeing, including:
  • Feeling calmer and more positive
  • Helping cope with stress and anxiety
  • Improving concentration and focus
  • Getting on better with others
Studies of school mindfulness programmes, including MiSP’s .b curriculum, provide evidence that they have the potential to improve some pupils’ behaviour, psychological health, and executive functioning, including regulating attention and behaviour.

Who would not be suitable to do the course?
  • Those who have experienced recent bereavement or trauma
  • If Mindfulness is contraindicated by mental health professional.
