The Psychology of Mindfulness – Course Description

The Psychology of Mindfulness is proposed for the Fall 2009. The course will include the 8-week mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) program as developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, plus a six weeks of academic study on mindfulness as a psychological concept.

Topic areas include:

  • mindfulness and health psychology
  • the anatomy of stress
  • mindfulness and neuroplasticity
  • mindfulness and psychotherapy

Students will be encouraged to develop their own mindfulness practice and make use of supports within the community.
