Mindfulness: focusing on the present moment
Contemporary Mindfulness is a popular and evidenced-based practice with benefits for general well-being and specific clinical difficulties. Through an explosion of empirical research in the past 20 years we now have a robust understanding of the particular meditative and non-meditative techniques that are effective, and of the psychological and biological mechanisms that underpin them. This seminar will briefly introduce some of the evidence, mechanisms, and models of Mindfulness, and then lead you in experiencing some of the key practices from the MBSR program. We hope that you will join this session to find out more about it, and to see if it is something that could help with your well-being and performance going forward.

After the seminar, we will organize a dinner at 7pm together with Dr. Howes, providing an opportunity for one-on-one discussions and further insights from his experience. The dinner will be at participants' expense.For more information, please contact the PhD representatives at MPI CPfS.
