Richard Cleveland, Ph.D.

Richard Cleveland, Ph.D.
, associate professor in the Department of Leadership, Technology and Human Development, presented with M.Ed. Counselor Education student Jared Simonin at the 2018 Georgia School Counselor Association annual conference held in Macon during November. The session, titled “Mindfulness with Judeo-Christian Student Populations,” explored a secularized conceptualization of mindfulness and then incorporated a Judeo-Christian framework for framing mindfulness-based interventions and how school counselors may implement the practices in K-12 settings. Despite research regarding clinical effectiveness and increased societal acceptance, students and parents/guardians adhering to a Judeo-Christian worldview may be hesitant to engage in mindfulness-based interventions due to perceptions of mindfulness as a strictly Buddhist practice.
