Brief Summary:
The primary research objective is to investigate psychological, behavioral, and physiological changes in school staff as a result of undergoing meditation and stress reduction training. Specifically, we hypothesize that school staff undergoing meditation and stress reduction training will show decreased emotional distress on self-report measures, increased sustained attention on a behavioral task, and decreased stress levels as indexed by salivary cortisol.
