Mindfulness is the ability to fully attend to what is at hand and be in the present moment. Mindfulness is being applied to a variety of professional fields, including health care and education, to improve effectiveness and enhance well-being. The practice of mindfulness can increase our individual and collective resiliency to respond to changing personal and global situations in adaptive and creative ways. The course will focus on mindfulness through theory, practice, and its application in relation to abnormal psychology and clinical healthcare practice. We will explore such questions as how mindfulness can be applied to mental and physical health.
The course will focus on clinical applications of mindfulness. Mindfulness will be explored through theoretical, applied and expressive arts projects.
Students will have an opportunity to learn in many ways using diverse modalities and multiple intelligences. We will integrate mindfulness practices into our studies, including movement, integrative health practices, and expressive art workshops (no prior experience necessary). We will participate in community readings, rigorous writing assignments, theoretical tests, and critical study of important texts. The program will include a full day mindfulness retreat.
This course meets with the 16-credit program Multicultural Counseling.
