|Mind & Matter Conference 2017
||Thursday 27 April 2017
Mindfulness Initiative Director Jamie Bristow will be chairing a panel at Mind & Matter on the subject of "Mindfulness and the challenges of the public service". http://mindandmatterevents.com/
Mindfulness training is increasingly being adopted within public services, potentially impacting factors as wide-ranging as victim satisfaction scores for police officers, compassion fatigue amongst medical staff and the bias-awareness of civil servants. In this panel session we’ll review what has been implemented so far, before exploring the particular opportunities and challenges within these sectors that can perhaps inform the wider mindfulness training field.
Facilitated by: Jamie Bristow, Director, Mindfulness Initiative
Diana Reynolds, Sustainable Development Change Manager, Welsh Government
Detective Inspector Jennifer McIntyre-Smith, Bedfordshire Police
Katy Owen, Head of Centre for Social Action and Evaluation, Cabinet Office

The Mindfulness Initiative Director Jamie Bristow will be talking about how over 145 MPs and members of the House of Lords have now been on an eight-week mindfulness course in Parliament.
