Mindfulness-based stress management (online course)

Department of General Practice - Mindfulness-based stress management (online course)

Too busy to attend a workshop? Living interstate or overseas? Why not study online? At the end of this course, you will receive both a university statement of results and also a certificate from the Department of General Practice, Monash University.


In this unit you will examine the body of scientific evidence as the basis of mind-body medicine including linking stress with mental and physical illness and with a range of unhealthy lifestyle behaviours. Linking theory with practice, this unit uses a deep learning methodology by teaching practical skills in the form of mindfulnessbased meditation and cognitive techniques which you first learn and practice so that you are better placed to teach others to carry out in a variety of settings. The unit identifies the circumstances and conditions in which these techniques are most useful. The links between scientific evidence, theory and practice are covered concurrently throughout the unit.
