Chapter 3 explores general strategies that are useful for teaching mindfulness to emerging adults. Traditional methods of teaching mindfulness and meditation are not always effective for engaging emerging adults. Often, students are enthusiastic about the idea of learning mindfulness, but they then have a hard time actually developing the skills in any meaningful way. This chapter looks at techniques that have proven useful for engaging the students in the study and practice of mindfulness. The strategies are divided into three categories: strategies related to the organization and structure of the class, strategies related to general teaching techniques, and strategies for dealing with typical student reactions. Each of these categories is fully explored, and examples of how to implement the various strategies are provided.
