Introduction
My postdoctoral research aims to evaluate the effects of mindfulness-based meditation in elementary school settings, specifically in children with severe learning difficulties and children with mental health disorders. I am also interested in evaluating the efficacy of mindfulness-based meditation in teenagers, namely in comparison to other forms of therapies (e.g. DBT-A). My doctoral research aimed to study the effects of mindfulness-based meditation in teenagers who had cancer.
