In this 8-week training, Ali Turfe, MA, SSP, LLP, and qualified MBSR Instructor, will teach Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR is the gold standard in the world for mindfulness training. MBSR is a proven self-care practice. It is time-tested, evidence-based, and supported by more than 40 years of empirical research. Achieving a well-balanced life means being aware of all aspects of ourselves: mind, body, heart, and soul. MBSR curriculum and methodology offers participants academic and experiential educational components. Learning objectives create a foundation for the cultivation of positive health behaviors and psychological and emotional resilience that can be effectively utilized across the adult life span. Participants should be able to integrate and apply mindfulness practices in their everyday lives and incorporate the tools and practices in ways beneficial to their students and staff. Registration for the 8-week course (offered in three sections) is available before attending orientation on January 9th. In addition to the 8 sessions, participants must attend a day-long silent practice and commit to 45-60 minutes of daily home practice. Space is limited to 16 participants per section (48 total for the three sections). Participants may earn 21-27 SCECHs (pending approval). For additional information, including the schedule of sessions and necessary documentation for SCECHs, see the attached document.
