Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Comprehensive Education and Skills Development for an Integrated Model of Care
The Herbert Benson, MD Course in Mind Body Medicine will be held online this year, using live streaming, electronic Q&A, and other remote learning technologies. Live streaming sessions will be recorded, and will be available for registrants to view on demand for 30 days after the conclusion of the course.
Mind body approaches such as meditation, yoga, cognitive skills, lifestyle interventions and positive psychology now boast an impressive evidence base to support their ability to improve—and in some cases, prevent—stress-related illnesses, ranging from asthma to hypertension, functional bowel diseases and pain syndromes.
Whether you are a physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker or therapist, mind body techniques provide you with evidence-based ways to enhance patient care and clinical outcomes.
The Herbert Benson, MD Course in Mind Body Medicine is a comprehensive education program where you learn how to incorporate these skills into your practice. It teaches:
• The latest data on stress, stress management, and resilience enhancement, and their impacts on patient health and treatment options
• The mind body approaches that form the foundation of modern self-care
• When, where and how you can employ mind body approaches to enhance patient care
• Practical skills to guide your patients in the use of self-care techniques
In addition to clinical approaches and integrative models of care, this program provides:
• Education on genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and how to leverage recent advances in the neuroimaging of contemplative states
• Opportunities for certification

For those who are new to mind body medicine, this program provides comprehensive education to begin using integrated models of care within your practice. For those who have experience in these methods, this program provides updates and workshops to take your skills to the next level.

All participants can customize their learning experience. The program offers 52 skills development sessions, focused presentations and interactive workshops. You can choose the ones that align with your specific goals and clinical interests.

This program is taught by leading practitioners and experts in the field of mind body medicine—including Dr. Daniel Goleman and Ms. Sharon Salzberg, who are both pioneers in the scientific and practical research of self-care interventions.

The 2020 program has been enhanced for distance learning. In addition to being live streamed, all sessions will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing for one month after the end of the course. This video archive will provide participants the opportunity to benefit from all of the program’s workshops, rather than having to choose from among groups of concurrent workshops typically offered during in-person courses. It will also ensure that participants who live in different time zones or who have scheduling conflicts do not miss out on any sessions that are important to them. In addition, participants can review sessions that they watched during live streaming to reinforce key learning points.
