Event description

Description

This is an event for Doctors who wish to explore mindfulness for their own wellbeing. GPs and Doctors of any specialty/grade can attend.

Medicine is a stressful profession, especially in the current climate of accelerated change. Doctors are expected to provide first class care to patients at all times; but how do we take care of ourselves? Research has shown benefits of mindfulness including stress reduction, increased job satisfaction, enhanced doctor-patient relationship, increased compassion and reduction in depression relapse.

This taster session explains how mindfulness can support health and well-being. The scientific understanding of mindfulness will also be covered. Examples of mindfulness practices will be demonstrated and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

Eight-week Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) courses specifically for Doctors started in September 2017. The January 2018 course is fully booked, but applications for the April 2018 course will open shortly.

The eight-week April MBCT course will run on a Thursday evening 6.30pm-8.30pm in Gosforth (for GPs and Doctors of any specialty/grade). Please see the website for more information and email lucy.harrison@schoolofmindfulness.co.uk if you are interesting in applying.

The Taster session and the MBCT courses are taught by Dr Lucy Harrison.

Lucy is a local GP and is a fully qualified MBCT teacher. She is currently doing a Masters in MBCT at Oxford University. She meets the UK Good Practice Guidelines for Mindfulness-based Teachers, i.e. she is suitably trained, committed to continuous professional development, holds appropriate insurance and receives supervision for her teaching through Oxford University.

Please note: this is a secular course.
