CPD Connect Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) - 9 week course

NHS staff currently report high levels of stress at work related to increasing workloads and demands and limited resources. Mindfulness is a healthy sustainable way to manage stress.  Research suggests that mindfulness has a powerful and positive effect on health and well-being across a wide range of physical and mental health conditions.
What is mindfulness?
“Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in a particular way, without judgment”. (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

•         managing anxiety
•         sharpening focus
•         increasing productivity
•         improving sleep
•         relieving pain
•         feeling a deeper sense of calm
 
Course includes:
•         Introductory week followed by a further 8 weekly 2½ hour group sessions
•         learning mindfulness practices such as body scan, sitting with the breath and mindful movement
•         over the course of the 9 weeks core mindfulness skills are progressively developed
•         the course is experiential - based on skills development, group discussion and home-based practice
•         course manual and practice CDs for home use are provided
