For Kaiser Permanente Healthcare Professionals:
An ONLINE class teaching the fundamentals of mindfulness and MBSR sponsored by WPMG.

     

Join us for an investigation of mindfulness from the inside out. Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals is based on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. MBSR is the best researched mindfulness intervention with positive research indications for:

    • Choosing appropriate mindfulness training techniques in preventative and responsive ways in high stress situations.
    • Utilizing appropriate mindfulness practices to mitigate the risk factors for burnout.
    • Discussing strategies with peers for a more positive, mindful engagement in work and home situations that have been previously triggered stress response and unhelpful behaviors.
    • Identifying helpful vs. unhelpful thought patterns, problem solving, emotional regulation, and meaning-focused coping strategies.
    • Demonstrating meaningful change in personal mindfulness, perceived stress, and burnout as shown in standardized measures administered pre- and post-activity.
      This Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals class (MHP) was inspired by MBSR and offers a deep taste of mindfulness training in a shorter 5-week period. For testimonials and pre-/post-data, see our MHP Program Description page.)
