Change in Decentering Mediates Improvement in Anxiety
in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Generalized
Anxiety Disorder
Mindfulness: teaches participants to increase awareness of
present-moment experiences, including thoughts, emotions,
and physical sensations, with a gentle and accepting
attitude
"We sought to examine psychological mechanisms
of treatment outcomes of a mindfulness meditation
intervention for GAD"
Decentering is based on finding and considering multiple aspects of a situation.
Results: . Individuals
in the MBSR group exhibited a significantly greater
change in decentering levels and
greater change in mindfulness levels than individuals in the SME group

Seating within classroom- have them sit away from the rowdy classmates because they fear that they will often get in trouble and this may help them focus on the task at hand
Following directions- signaling to the class that you are going to give certain directions is helpful so students know when to listen and pay attention
Class presentations- Children with extreme social anxiety may have difficulty with oral reports. Consider having the child present to the teacher alone, or have the child audiotape or videotape the presentation at home.
Testing conditions- Extended time on tests will ease the pressure on anxious children.
