We live in a fast-paced world!  It seems that especially in the fields of health and human services, jobs are becoming more complicated - demanding more of our time and energy.  This course introduces the concept of mindfulness and teaches staff how to effectively bring the practice of mindfulness into their professions. 

This powerful skill is a recognized method for increasing productivity and effectiveness in the workplace. It gives staff a sense of true connection with those they support while maintaining healthy emotional boundaries and guarding against energy depletion.

What is Mindfulness?

  • Staying in the present moment,
  • Being in touch with oneself,
  • Remaining aware of circumstances,
  • Consciously interacting with others, and
  • Acting with intention.

The Benefits of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an approach that provides tremendous personal benefits such as reducing stress, increasing positive energy, and supporting a feeling of well-being.  When using mindfulness techniques, staff are better equipped to deal with the challenges of their work, allowing for both professional and personal growth.
