There is a lot more to Acceptance and Commitment Training than just mindfulness. The core principle of Acceptance and Commitment Training is behavioural flexibility. Flexibility in our thinking, feelings and actions. It is about identifying ones core values and regularly taking actions that are guided by these values.
Mindfulness helps us “wake up”, connect with ourselves, and appreciate the fullness of each moment of life.
A = Accept your thoughts and feelings, and be present
C = Choose a valued direction
T = Take Action
When we are flexible we can:
And do what matters!
By being aware of our student's social and emotional needs; and teaching students to be mindful and aware in the present moment, we are helping our students to improve relationships. This key skill, encompassing social skills development and emotional regulation, is at the heart of all school activities. We believe that these skills will support our students for sustained future success in both school and more importantly throughout life.
