WEBINAR: The Impact of Mind Matters: Results from the University of Louisville’s pilot Study. March 2020.

Mind Matters was reviewed in this report “because it was being distributed by the leading purveyor of youth HMRE curricula and focused explicitly on self-regulation. At the time of the review in early 2018, Mind Matters had just been published, and therefore was not being used by any HMRE programs for youth. During the review, [OPRE] extracted information on the three domains of self-regulation (cognitive, emotion, and behavior regulation) and co-regulation (relationships, environment, and skills coaching, plus adult self-regulation) and their key constructs (the components listed in the definitions of each domain), as well as information about implementation factors such as recommended dosage, target audience, setting and group size, educator training requirements, and topics of each lesson.)
