For the last 30 plus years, research studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of mindfulness approaches for treating many clinical conditions such as chronic pain, recurrent major depression, anxiety/stress, eating disorder and other health conditions. Researchers have also found them to be effective as a method for broadening and cultivating positive human qualities, personal growth and professional development. 

This course will emphasize the theory, practice, research, especially applying mindfulness as a clinical tool as well as method of professional self-care.  Students will explore the similarities and differences between various mindfulness clinical approaches and gain practical skills to help alleviate the psychological suffering of others while maintaining emotional balance and professional ethics. Students will have opportunities for personal practice, observational learning, and the development of therapeutic skills through relevant readings, keeping practice logs, and attending a retreat format class.
