Mindfulness is the art of paying complete attention. Its practice improves concentration, focus, self-awareness and self-mastery, while reducing stress. When introduced into the classroom and other educational settings, it has improved academic functioning and decreased performance anxiety.
By itself or as an adjunct, the practice of mindfulness has also demonstrated effectiveness for both psychological disorders and physical diseases, including ADHD, mood and anxiety problems, substance abuse and addiction, chronic pain and autoimmune and metabolic disorders.
Additionally, mindfulness training has improved the health and well-being of patients and personnel alike in medical settings.
The Psychological Services Center (PSC) is pleased to offer Mindfulness Skills Training, open to all students, staff, faculty and their significant others . It is held virtually via ZoomPro every Thursday from 12:05 to 12:45 p.m. To attend a session, join by clicking the link below:
