Mindfulness practices are important in order to be proactive in resolving conflicts as well as being useful to help individuals remain or regain focus. Resilience is needed in any career or learning setting in order to achieve. The Center of Resilience is used in the classroom of many schools around Rhode Island by trying teachers, administrators and parents to work directly with the culture of the schools. From my research I found that their main goal is to help the students at these schools manage their time and work load better to give the students a successful opportunity to become adults and community leaders.
Mindfulness is useful in other places besides a school setting which means what these students learn could be passed on to help the community. I found it interesting to see the high school testimonials and how they change their behavior from what they would normally do with their peers to something that would better them in the long run. I can relate to this when we went to Calcutt Middle School in Central Falls and interacted with the students, these students were leaders of their time in my opinion.
