Hi all, I have read quite a few threads on here regarding dissertation questions so I apologise if this makes you roll your eyes because you've heard it all before. I am a 3rd year primary education student about to start my dissertation. I initially really wanted to something around Mental Health and anxiety but was advised to steer away from it as parents and teachers still tend to avoid the term "mental health". My other concern is that this topic might be viewed as more of a "psychology" topic than an educational one. I would still like to touch on it in some way and thought about maybe looking at mindfulness and the benefits of mindfulness in the primary school but I am struggling to come up with a variable. So far I have thought of how mindfulness impacts children with anxiety, how mindfulness impacts behaviour, mindfulness CBT... I am on placement at the minute in a year 4 class so I don't think Mindfulness and exam related stress would work. I have posted this in the SEND section only because I wasn't quite sure what category it would fall under. Many thanks in advance!
