UW-Stevens Point students are invited to attend "An Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction" held Friday, October 28 on the UWSP campus. This special one-day experiential workshop led by Susan Woods, MSW., LICSW will allow you to get a taste of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. Founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., the program was featured on PBS in Bill Moyers' documentary, "Healing and the Mind" (seen by more than 40 million people,) the Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC's Evening News, NBC's Dateline and hundreds of newspapers and magazine articles.
In this workshop, you will learn about the design of this 8-week group intervention, the principles of mindfulness, and what current research is demonstrating about how the practice of mindfulness meditation can reduce anxiety, depression and pain, as well as improve a sense of well-being. The workshop is designed to allow you experience both formal and informal mindfulness meditation. Through guided instruction in mindfulness meditation, some gentle stretching and mindful yoga, you will explore this practical approach to living fully in the present moment that has helped thousands of people achieve a greater sense of ease, increased vitality, and improved self-care leading to better health outcomes
This workshop is intended for anyone interested in health and wellness and is relevant for health care professionals, social workers, teachers, professors, advisors, coaches and physical fitness trainers; students majoring in Athletic Training, Dietetics, Family and Consumer Sciences, Education, Health and Wellness Management, Health Promotion/Wellness, Health Science, Nursing, Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology; and others who work with clients on issues related to health and wellness promotion.
