Defining mindfulness

image

‘Mindfulness’ seems to be everywhere at the moment, though ironically this doesn’t necessarily mean it is widely practised, even by those of us who’d like to embrace it.

Our colleague Liz Sparks recently shared ten things she feels everyone should know about mindfulness at The Huffington Post Lifestyle Blog.

Students on our MSc Health Psychology course have the opportunity to learn about the theory behind mindfulness-based interventions in healthcare, as well as practical techniques.  They also have a chance to critically evaluate mindfulness-based interventions and explore the evidence for their efficacy.

Training in the psychology of mindfulness, acceptance and commitment

What is it?

We offer introductory training that develops knowledge and skills in

  • The psychology of mindfulness, acceptance and commitment
  • Practical skills in mindfulness based interventions
  • The evidence base for mindfulness based interventions in mental and physical health settings

Who is it for?

This training is suitable for anyone who works with others to help them accept, adjust to and cope with difficult life circumstances, for example, those with long term health conditions, chronic pain, or stress.

If you have a number of people who want to be trained, we can bring the training to you and tailor the programme to your specific needs. We also run training days on our Coventry campus, for individuals to attend. These too can be tailored to meet the needs of the individuals who sign up.

When is it?

Our on-campus workshop in mindfulness approaches will be on 4th September 2013. For further details or to book a place click here.
