In this course, students will examine the use of mindfulness practice in reducing stress. The practice of mindfulness has been shown to help individuals be more aware and present of their conscious state. When focusing on the here-and-now, individuals are better able to assess the stressors in their lives individually and to manage feelings of overwhelm.

  1. Explain the use of mindfulness for stress reduction.
  2. Discuss evidence-based support for mindfulness practice, and the recurring concepts in mindfulness.
  3. Identify mindfulness strategies and techniques for stress reduction.
  4. Describe how to create awareness, perception and reactions.
  5. Outline the power of being present.
  6. Identify stress situations and how to deal with them.
  7. Explain effective interpersonal communication.
