With a growing public interest in and research base underlying mindfulness, clinicians are increasingly interested in learning what it is, how it works, what research is credible, and how to help their patients. This seminar series will help primary care providers understand how our brains form unhealthy habits that lead to common yet difficult to treat conditions such as obesity and anxiety, what mindfulness is (and isn’t), how mindfulness works in the brain to effect behavior change, what the current evidence base is behind it, how it can help us “hack” our brains for better health and how one might apply the learnings to patients. Several modules are included which are geared toward helping clinicians themselves decrease burnout and develop resilience (and become less addicted to their phones).
There are seven seminar modules, each delivered in video format and approximately 20 minutes in length. The seminars will be delivered as a series, but each module can be viewed as a stand-alone topic.
Continuing education units will be available through Brown University.
