Course in Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance

FutureLearn
Online Full time Part time 6 weeks September 2017 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This practical six-week course explores the science, practice and philosophy of mindfulness. You will learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices into your life to reduce stress, improve mental health, and enhance your personal and professional life. [+]

Course in Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance Tired, distracted and stressed by the pace of modern life? Mindfulness might be the solution. Mindfulness is essentially about being more aware and awake in every moment of your life. It is about intentionally paying attention to each moment, being fully engaged in whatever is happening around and within you, with an attitude of friendliness and compassion. Research shows that when we are not deliberately paying attention to something, our brain clicks off into default mode, which is characterised by mind wandering, operating on “autopilot,” dwelling on the past, and worrying about judgment, criticism and the future. The result can be increased stress and anxiety, poor communication, and impaired academic and occupational functioning. Learn mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve performance Mindfulness can help you unhook from these unproductive thought patterns and behaviours, and engage more fully with work and leisure time. This practical six-week course explores the science, practice and philosophy of mindfulness. You will learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices into your life to reduce stress, improve mental health, and enhance your personal and professional life. You will understand formal mindfulness meditation practices, as well as the informal practice of being mindful in daily life to learn - to pay attention to the present moment instead of worrying, dwelling in the past or reacting to what is happening. You will also develop an attitude of friendliness and compassion toward yourself, as opposed to self-criticism. These mindfulness-based approaches have been found to improve executive functioning, learning and memory, performance, communication, empathy, and mental and physical health. Learn from experienced mindfulness practitioners Associate Professor Craig Hassed is a General Practitioner and Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, and the Mindfulness Coordinator at Monash University. Craig is a regular speaker in Australia and internationally on the application of mindfulness for health and wellbeing. Craig has authored nine books, including Mindful Learning with Dr Richard Chambers. Dr Richard Chambers is a clinical psychologist specialising in mindfulness-based therapies. A Mindfulness Consultant at Monash, Richard has published a number of peer-reviewed journal articles and was involved in the development of Smiling Mind, a website and smartphone app designed to make mindfulness accessible to young people. You can find out more about this course in Craig and Richard’s post for the FutureLearn blog: “Mindfulness: how not to be driven to distraction in this modern world.” Sign up today, and join the “mindfulness revolution”! Requirements This course is for anyone, because everyone can benefit from mindfulness. No previous experience of mindfulness is required. We will explain how mindfulness works, but above all this is a practical course. We will ask you to explore different mindfulness techniques and reflect on your experience. This course is not designed to be therapeutic for significant health problems so if you have any concerns in this regard then it is recommended that you speak to a suitably qualified health practitioner.

Course 2017. Preprofessional Studies: Pre-Occupational Therapy Preprofessional studies in the College of Applied Health Sciences are designed for students who intend to pursue their undergraduate or graduate education in professional programs of our College. Preprofessional students typically are Kinesiology majors. Advisors for students in pre-occupational therapy and pre-physical therapy are available in the College Office of Student Affairs and the department offices. Students are also encouraged to participate in the preadmission information sessions which are held monthly within the OT and PT departments. Completion of the required course work or attainment of the minimum grade point average does not guarantee admission to a professional program. Pre-OT and pre-PT students must complete all the requirements for a bachelor’s degree, including a major, in addition to the preprofessional studies. Pre-Occupational Therapy Occupational therapists provide services to maximize the function and satisfaction of persons whose daily life performance has been interrupted and jeopardized by disease, disability, life stress, and other factors. The occupational therapist provides the individual with opportunities for involvement in carefully chosen work, play, or self-care activities. The occupational therapist also uses various methods of mutual problem solving, environmental modification, adaptive devices, technology, and biomechanical and sensorimotor treatment methods to support and enhance performance. Many occupational therapists work within hospital settings, but there is growing emphasis on prevention and treatment of people with disabilities in nonclinical settings. As a result, many new areas of employment are now available. For example, occupational therapists are increasingly employed in school systems where they work with children with disabilities, enhancing their ability to perform as students. Working with in-home health organizations, occupational therapists help individuals and families function more adequately at daily tasks. In industrial settings, they aid workers' with disabilities or injuries return to gainful employment. In addition, occupational therapists have developed private practices. Pre-occupational therapy students may choose any major but should work with a preprofessional advisor to plan a course of study that fulfills pre-occupational therapy studies requirements as well as the requirements for the major.
