Mind Body Skills training session
Mind-Body skill groups focus on the interactions between mind and body and the powerful ways in which emotional, mental, social and spiritual factors can directly affect health. At the heart of the Center’s philosophy lies the principle that the successful treatment of others begins with Self-Care (“Physician, Heal thyself,” Hippocrates), and that Self Care begins with the ability to observe one’s self and one’s reactions both alone and amongst others.
Thus, the central tool in the Mind-Body Skills methodology is a meditative, small group that respects and enhances each person’s capacity for self-knowledge and self-care. In these groups the participants learn the theory and practice of an array of easy to learn but scientifically validated techniques.

The small group context creates a supportive environment in which participants observe themselves and their reactions in a way the frenzy of life rarely allows. The groups make use of peoples’ strengths; encourage them to experiment with their own abilities; enhance their sense of control; are free from any stigma that may be associated with “mental illness”; and are as well, interesting and fun. The techniques and the groups have proven appealing and applicable to people of all ages, ethnic groups and levels of education.
The techniques include relaxation, breathing techniques, biofeedback, autogenics, and self expression through words and drawings.

The methodology has been adapted to a variety of settings, all involving the development of self-applied responses to ongoing stressful and pathogenic situations including depression, cancer, nutrition issues, post-traumatic stress
and fertility treatment.

The Center offers basic, advanced and certification training programs for professionals wishing to Integrate Mind-Body skills work into their clinical practice & medical education.
