About the Workshop
With China’s urbanization and its development in market economy, mass rural-to-urban migration has occurred over the past decades. Consequently, number of migrant children has significantly increased. In this talk, Prof. Chien-Chung Huang (bio) will first draw from secondary data to reveal that migrant children have worse psychological and behavioral outcomes than local children. Prof. Huang will then share new findings from mindfulness and life-skill interventions for migrant children designed by his research team. The results from the interventions indicate that mindfulness and life-skill training have potential to increase resilience and improve well-being of migrant children in China.
