Mindfulness Is The New Black! 

In this online course, we will delve into the science behind stress and the difference between acute and chronic stress and effects on the body and brain. We will discuss the difference between a Stress Response versus a Stress Reaction, what it means and which one is better.

Objectives:

  • Define and outline the difference between chronic and acute stress and effects of stress on the body and brain
  • Differentiate between a stress response versus a stress reaction
  • Define MBSR and how tools taught in MBSR can help manage and cope with stress
