Abstract

Murid-murid yang menghadapi masalah menumpukan perhatian akan menjejaskan pencapaian akademik mereka di dalam kelas. Intervensi mindfulness berupaya sebagai penyelesaian yang alternatif untuk meningkatkan kemahiran perhatian mereka terutamanya perhatian selektif mereka. Kajian ini bertujuan untuk menguji keberkesanan intervensi mindfulness dalam kalangan murid sekolah rendah dalam meningkatkan kemahiran selektif murid dengan reka bentuk kajian eksperimental. Kajian ini melibatkan 22 orang murid tahun 6 di sekolah rendah dengan membahagikan mereka kepada kumpulan rawatan dan kumpulan kawalan. Perhatian selektif responden sebelum dan selepas intervensi diukur dengan menggunakan perisian komputer iaitu ujian Stroop dan ujian pencarian visual conjunction (CVS). Data kajian dianalisis dengan menggunakan analisis deskriptif dan inferensi untuk melihat keberkesanan intervensi mindfulness terhadap perhatian selektif. Hasil kajian menunjukkan peningkatan yang signifikan dalam kedua-dua instrumen perhatian pada kumpulan rawatan pada masa tindak balas iaitu (F=17.631, p<.05) pada ujian Stroop dan (F=4.98,p<.05)pada ujian CVS. Dapatan kajian ini dapat memberi implikasi kepada guru-guru atau ibu bapa untuk membantu murid-murid sekolah rendah yang bermasalah pembelajaran yang berpunca daripada kekurangan perhatian selektif.
