Abstract
Objective: In recent years, the use of mindfulness-based interventions has been gaining momentum in various psycho-educational and therapeutic investigations for adults and adolescents. The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of Mindfulness-based Intervention with children on text anxiety among Iranian school-aged children.
Methods: This is a two group pretest-posttest quasi-experimental study. The population of this study was Iranian elementary students aged 5 to 12. Convenience sampling was used to recruit 234 participants. The participants were randomly assigned to control (n=117) and intervention (n=117) groups. The intervention group received 9 weeks (8 sessions) of mindfulness-based educational-intervention, with each session lasting for 45-75min. The control group did not receive this type of training. The research instrument was Test Anxiety Inventory (TAI). ANCOVA procedures were used to analyze the data.
Results: The results indicated a significant decrease in children’s test anxiety in the intervention group (F=10.645, p<0.001).
Conclusion: The mindfulness-based intervention with children could be used as a psycho-educational method to decrease test anxiety in Iranian children.
