Sponsored by: The Department of Family Medicine Rochester - Mindful Practice Programs
Hosted by: The Center for Experiential Learning
A 5-day, retreat-like workshop designed to enable clinician and medical educators deepen their skills in Mindful Practice and their ability to teach and develop programs in Mindful Practice at their home institutions.
Designed for medical practitioners (physicians, NPs, PAs) and others involved in medical practice and education, the program combines didactic presentations and experiential exercises using narratives, appreciative inquiry, and contemplative practices such as mindfulness meditation.
Session themes address attention, suffering, teamwork, difficult conversations with patients/families, uncertainty in medicine, medical education, grief and loss, resilience and compassion.
The workshop will offer hands-on experience in teaching and facilitation. It is designed for those who have previously attended a Mindful Practice workshop or equivalent training and wish to advance teaching skills and to support efforts at implementing Mindful Practice® curricula in their own settings. Participants should have prior experience with meditation, yoga or other self-awareness practices as well as prior teaching experience.
