F804 Fall 2019 Mindfulness and Stress Reduction
Thursdays, 11:50–1:15, Oct. 17–Oct. 31
Three sessions
Instructor: Neil Goodman

This course will examine various approaches that have been successfully utilized to reduce stress. It has been reported that American corporations and businesses are spending upwards of 300 billion dollars every year on injuries, illnesses, and absenteeism due to stress. The high levels of stress identified with military combat veterans as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are not so different from the stress resulting from the pressures that elderly citizens, surviving spouses, and care givers face from routine exposure to daily life. The aging population also deals with the challenges of the modern world, such as technology. We will examine the use of several powerful tools such as mindfulness, meditation and the Emotional Freedom Technique. These methods will guide us to a greater balance of health and wellness.
