Mindfulness is a useful addition to medical curricula
Mindfulness & Compassion courses and day retreats for medical students and healthcare professionals
A wealth of surveys reveal high levels of stress and burnout in the healthcare profession. Many suffer from excessive working hours, sleep deprivation and repeated exposure to emotionally charged situations which lead to conflicts at work and at home, and eventually to burnout. Learning mindfulness skills alleviates the suffering of those who are helping others.
Sessions are built on the Mindfulness based stress reduction courses developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy created by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale. The course we teach is CPD office accredited and it is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) and The Mental Health Foundation for the treatment of anxiety, depression and work related stress.
We are available to run courses and one day mindfulness from Hospitals, Surgeries, Health Centres and wherever convenient. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
