The Founder and President of Ivy Child International, Rose Pavlov and author, Autumn Silke developed and implemented a customized 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum to provide techniques and strategies for an inner-city adolescent population to cope with stress. Students and teachers were given pre, mid, and post assessments to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. The results indicate a significant reduction in disciplinary action taken as well as a reduction in stress reported by both students and teachers.
