Course Description

1.5 HOURS OF SOCIAL WORK CONTINUING EDUCATION

In this introductory presentation we’ll explore the relationship between mindfulness and stress, emotions, your well-being and the impact of those on your relationship with your clients. We will investigate some of the evidence that shows how mindfulness can help improve our professional and personal lives, and see examples of how mindfulness is practiced and who is using it. Together we’ll try out some practices that can help you reconnect to inspiration and joy in your life and enhance your ability to connect with others. We’ll also provide some resources to support your integration of mindfulness into your daily schedule.
