Full course description
This class teaches skills to increase resilience during and after stressful life events, improve general well-being and enhance performance in demanding activities. These skills belong to an evidence-based intervention called Mind-Body Bridging that alleviates psychological distress and enhances psychological resilience and general well-being. Participants will learn to cultivate present-focused awareness of their body, thoughts, and emotions and develop an understanding of the psychological mechanisms behind maladaptive mind-body states and behaviors. They will learn techniques that enhance awareness and understanding of their thought processes, as well as re-evaluate or reframe both negative and positive experiences, and adjust non-productive and limiting expectations of themselves, others, and the world that restrict their potential.
