The MindUP curriculum teaches social and emotional learning skills that link cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology and mindful, awareness training utilizing a brain centric approach. MindUP is a research-based training program for educators and children. This program is composed of 15 lessons based in neuroscience and uses the latest information about the brain to dramatically improve behavior and learning. Each lesson offers easy strategies for helping students focus their attention, improve their self-regulation skills, build resilience to stress, and develop a positive mind-set in both school and life. MindUP lessons support improved academic performance while enhancing perspective taking, empathy and kindness as well as fostering complex problem solving skills.
Founder Goldie Hawn collaborated with neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists and educators to create MindUP, a program that fosters a classroom-learning environment where a child’s ability to academically succeed and personally thrive is maximized and directly linked to their overall state of well-being. Rigorously researched, MindUp has been proven to reduce stress, improve academic performance, strengthen abilities for concentration and help children and educators thrive in a setting that becomes a community of learners.
MindUp nurtures optimism and happiness in the classroom, helps eliminate bullying and aggression, increases empathy and compassion, while resolving peer conflicts in schools. Our teachers are prepared with the instructional shifts needed to achieve maximum academic performance.
