We are delighted to let you know that Cocoon Family Support will be running a 10 week ‘Introduction to Mindfulness’ course in partnership with Kings College London. This course will run on Tuesdays from the 14th April until July at the Ethelred Children’s Centre, Lollard Street, SE11. We also have a limited number of childcare places.
This course is a research study and will be facilitated by Dr. Tamara Russell from King’s College London. Tamara will talk about the …practice of mindfulness and how it is used by families, mums and young people. We will explore mindfulness exercises and hear about what happens in the brain when you train in mindfulness.
Tamara and Cocoon are working together to study the benefits of mindfulness for mums with post-natal depression. In order to take part in this course you must be prepared to complete some pre and post course assessment forms and allow Kings College to use the result in their study (all information will be anonymised).
