Using Mindfulness and a Resiliency Based Pedagogy to protect Forensic Psychology students from Secondary Trauma in teaching
Keywords:Forensic, Psychology, Pedagogy, Mindfulness, Resiliency
In this paper I will be reflecting on the development of a mindfulness and resilience based pedagogy in Forensic Psychology. I will describe how I approached this using the ‘What’ reflection model by Rolfe, Freshwater and Jasper (2001) which asks three questions:
- So What?
- Now What?
The paper concludes with recommendations for how Forensic Psychology could be taught in a way that reduces the risk of secondary trauma for Forensic Psychology students by using a Mindfulness and Resiliency Based Pedagogy.
