  •  Articulate the key aspects of mindfulness as it relates to stress reduction, coping with pain and illness and enhancing well-being

  • Practice and apply mindfulness techniques in both personal and professional settings as a means of contending more effectively with the demands of both settings

  • Integrate mindfulness into social interaction with patients, colleagues, supervisors, family and friends to facilitate more effective and mindful communication

  • Articulate the potential benefits of mindfulness-based stress reduction (and mindfulness in general) to educate friends and families about the benefits of such programs in their own lives

  • Implement brief mindfulness practices with friends and family members as a means of contending with acute pain, anxiety and distress

Program activities include meditation, short talks, experiential exercises, group discussion, and home practices. The emphasis of the program is on enhancing emotional resources and personal capacities
