Mindfulness-Based Wellness Education: An Introduction – Dover

Mindfulness-Based Wellness Education: An Introduction – Dover
Workshop One - Mindfulness-Based Wellness Education: An Introduction Time/Duration: 1 Workshop, 3 Hours Long (3 CE Credits) Participant Count: 50   Description: The traditional medical model of health care emphasizes recovery and healing from injury, illness, and diminishment.  However, the Wellness model is a holistic approach to health care that emphasizes personal growth and resilience to prevent illness and enhance well being.  Mindfulness-based interventions were first employed in stress reduction (a medical model application), but more recently have been shown to enhance overall well being and health (a wellness model application). The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to mindfulness practices that are associated with wellness, and to describe the variety of mindfulness training workshops available through GIFT and Department of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH).   Learning Objectives
  • Experience mindfulness practices
  • Gain access to resources to cultivate a mindful way of being
  • Understand the principles of wellness and their relationship to greater resilience and well being
  • Learn about the 4-week and 8-week Mindfulness-Based Wellness Education program being offered by the DSAMH training office
