A Mindfulness Based Stress Resilience Training for College Students
We offer four four-week mindfulness based groups (two in the Spring and two in the Fall) for young adults who are interested in developing effective ways to manage the stress associated with the academic and interpersonal demands of college life.
The small group format allows each participant to work on their personal goals, while sharing their experiences in a small, intimate, and confidential setting. Students have reported that in addition to the skills that they learn in the workshops, they also value the opportunity to feel connected to others who share similar experiences.
The four-week workshop is designed to introduce students to the practice of mindfulness as a way to manage stress, and to provide an opportunity to establish and support their practice so they can achieve maximum benefits of mindfulness.
Some of the benefits that the students have reported as a result of their participation in this group are:
- The topic of stress and relationships helped me to open a dialogue in my own relationships.
- I had the opportunity to think about stressors in my life and how to deal with them.
- It helped me to get a better understanding of stress and recognize and prevent it in my own life.
