MBSR for Healthcare Providers
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 - Tue. May 27, 2014 (8 weeks)
Every Tuesday from 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM
Developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, MBSR is the core program of the Mindfulness Center. MBSR classes include instruction in meditation, mindful movement, and other mindfulness practices. This mindfulness program includes these elements and has been adapted specifically for healthcare professionals. The course can offer benefits in multiple areas, including: reduced stress and increased well-being; improved balance between work and personal life; and better communication with patients and others. In addition, familiarity with the practice of mindfulness allows healthcare professionals to determine suitability of mindfulness programs for patients.
The 8-week course meets for 2.5 hours each week. An all-day silent retreat is also part of the program. CME and CEU credits are offered.
