Cultivating mindfulness and meditation reduces symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression and chronic pain. For mental health clinicians these benefits can support wellness, minimize burnout and provide a foundation for incorporating mindfulness and meditation into clinical practice.
The classic 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course is offered for mental health clinicians, clergy, chaplains, and others working in the mental health field. This is an opportunity for participants to have a direct experience of the MBSR curriculum for personal practice and provides a foundation for those clinicians interested in incorporating techniques of mindfulness into their clinical practices/settings. This course meets the prerequisite for those who are interested in entering the pathway to become MBSR teachers themselves.
