The course provides an introduction to theories of mindfulness and how mindfulness can be used in relation to, for example, stress and self-compassion. There are opportunities to learn various mindfulness practices and reflect on their effect: home practice of a minimum of 30 minutes a day is an integral part of this and a journal is to be kept reflecting on this as well as experiences in the group. Small group work gives students an opportunity to discuss and monitor their own learning
The course content has some flexibility in order to respond to any specific needs of the group.
