Schussler named associate editor of Mindfulness journal

Deborah Schussler, Associate Professor of Education at Penn State and PRC affiliate faculty member, assumed the role of associate editor of the journal Mindfulness on Jan. 3.

Schussler said that she hopes to bring a lens of implementation science to the editorial board of Mindfulness by unpacking how mindfulness-based programs in schools are demonstrating effectiveness to identify what is working, for whom, and under what conditions.

Although mindfulness has moved more into the mainstream in educational settings, Schussler noted that “it's important that the hype does not surpass the science. As with any potentially beneficial intervention, we have to understand the essential elements of effective programs and how programs can and should be modified for different populations.” 

Schussler has also served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Teacher Education and Cogent Education.
