Schools are considered one of the primary settings in which prevention and intervention initiatives can be implemented successfully, reaching a large number of young people. Especially when promoting social and emotional learning (SEL), many adolescents benefit from universal programs implemented in the school context. This chapter embeds mindfulness programs within the context of SEL. The author formulates initial recommendations for successful school-based implementation of mindfulness, drawing from previous empirical evidence for successful SEL programming. Practical resources and recommendations for finding, choosing, and successfully implementing and sustaining a mindfulness program in an educational context are provided.
