Mindful Healing

About this program

Mindful Healing is an in-person, eight-session in mindfulness course for health professionals that teaches formal and informal mindfulness skills. The goal of this program is to impact, enhance, and support quality of caring, and clinician well-being. 

Program details

This course is based largely on the pioneering Mindful Practice in Medicine program by Dr. Ronald Epstein and Dr. Michael Krasner and colleagues at the University of Rochester, along with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, and the stream of clinical mindfulness-based interventions influenced by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

Mindful Healing draws from the field of narrative medicine with mindful communication, appreciative inquiry, and reflection exercises to explore topics that challenge clinicians, including secondary trauma, handling grief and suffering, and workplace relationships.
