Mindfulness for Health System Employees

July 26, 2019 by School of Medicine Webmaster

Developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is the core program of the Mindfulness Center. MBSR classes include instruction in mindfulness meditation, mindful movement, and other mindfulness practices. This mindfulness program includes these elements and has been adapted specifically for healthcare professionals.

The course can offer benefits in multiple areas, including: reduced stress and increased well-being; improved balance between work and personal life; and better communication with patients and others. In addition, familiarity with the practice of mindfulness allows healthcare professionals to determine suitability of mindfulness programs for patients.
