This 3-hour course will present the science of mindfulness and its relevance to health care delivery. We work and live in stressful times that wreak havoc on our physical health, mental performance, and emotional fitness. Rehabilitation therapists routinely work with clients who have difficulty focusing on the therapy session due to pain, anxiety, or fears about their recovery, and as a result progress toward their therapy goals can be slowed or stalled. Therapy professionals can help patients break this pattern by utilizing basic mindfulness techniques. Two decades of research confirm its positive impact, and neuroscience has demonstrated that mindfulness not only influences neurobiological processes, it also changes the composition and structure of the brain. Instructors will suggest a model for incorporating mindfulness techniques in rehabilitation therapies to improve patient outcomes without adding additional cost or time commitment. Participants will be able to practice the techniques learned in a role-playing exercise with other participants and instructors.
