Mindfulness in the Helping Professions (Post - BA)
The Mindfulness in the Helping Professions Certificate Program is a 14-credit hour multidisciplinary program offered by the College of Health and Human Services and the College of Education.
The program combines classroom instruction, labs, and integrative seminars. It will prepare post-master's level practitioners and advanced graduate students to integrate mindfulness practice and theory into their clinical practice. Although mindfulness has been practiced for centuries, psychotherapy has more recently incorporated this evidence-based practice to enhance healing and psychological unfolding.
