PSY-333: Mindfulness-Based Practices: Applications for Mental and Physical Health Care Providers and Educators
3 credit hours
This course introduces students to the practice of mindfulness meditation, the research and science behind mindfulness, and the evidence-based uses of mindfulness in mental healthcare, physical healthcare and education. The development of mindfulness, both for self-care and as a clinical skill, requires intense training, practice and supervision. This course will thus require a substantial time commitment and a willingness to practice mindfulness exercises at least 45 minutes daily, outside of regular class time, during most of the duration of the session. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.
