Mindfulness + Resiliency in a Healthcare Setting

nsha

In the fall of 2016 I was invited by   the Amherst Nova Scotia Mental Health & Addictions Services treatment centre to deliver a 6 week program based on the UCLA Mindful Awareness Practices program. Participants included mental health professionals from many disciplines – family physicians, counsellors, & psychiatrists.

In June 2017, the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons featured an article in their monthly newsletter discussing the program.  I’m happy to be sharing the article – it includes insights from participants, and an outline of the research study.
