Half day course

Stress is a leading cause of sickness absence across all workplaces in the UK. Against this background many organisations are seeking to introduce mindfulness programmes.

There is a wealth of research evidence emerging to indicate that mindfulness can reduce stress and anxiety and can reduce the incidence of recurrent depression. In addition, mindfulness can improve attention and decision making.

This course provides an introduction to mindfulness in the workplace. The aim is to explore the meaning and potential applications of mindfulness across a variety of roles and workplace settings and to provide participants with the opportunity to explore how it might enhance their lives, personally and professionally.
