The Contemplative Teaching and Learning (CTL) Initiative of the Garrison
Institute has launched a searchable database of peer-reviewed
articles on K-12 contemplative education. A free, publicly accessible resource made possible by a generous grant from the 1440 Foundation, the database currently contains over 200 research articles, literature reviews, and construct validity studies. Initiative staff will continue to add new articles to maintain it as an up-to-date source of research in the field.
Users can search the database by several criteria that help identify the
studies that are most relevant to their work: author, journal, article
title and research focus (research on children and adolescents in schools,
research on children and adolescents in clinical settings, studies
involving teachers and research with parents).
Each article entry contains a complete APA citation, abstract and link to
the journal in which it was published. Whenever possible, a link to the
full text of the articles is also available.
The goal is to make the rapidly growing body of research on contemplative
education easier to find and access, and to give students and researchers a comprehensive yet focused collection of articles to promote further study and dialogue.
