The content and format of this program is based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR), a research-based program westernized by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. This eight session program is called an "adaptation of MBSR" because it follows the primary format of the MBSR course though it is  provided in slightly fewer hours and does not include the ninth session which is a full day silent retreat that is part of the standard MBSR training. You will receive systematic instruction for how to use mindfulness and mindfulness meditation as a self-regulation approach to your stress reduction and emotion management. Nearly three decades of research around the world suggest that learning these techniques can positively and significantly impact a person's ability to reduce medical symptoms, stress and other psychological stress. The end result is a life that is more balanced, peaceful, and healthier. People are able to more effectively manage their emotions and stresses in the work environment and in their personal lives. Content level is beginning and intermediate.

Target audience: primarily human service professionals though anyone who wants to learn MBSR practice may register.

  • An introduction to the concept of mindfulness
  • How to perform a body scan

  • How to review the various aspects of stress triggers and reactions in your life
  • How to use a pleasant events calendar for your life
