Jeffrey Rutstein, Psy.D, clinical psychologist and director of the Life Center for Growth and Health, PC and Deborah Metzger, E-500-RYT, LSW, PCYH’s Founder and Director, will teach students the same 8-week series that forms the basis today for the key research studies with meditation.
Based on the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, the program‘s structured educational approach offers mindfulness meditation and gentle yoga as the core of its program to guide people to take better care of themselves and to live healthier and more adaptive lives. People who have participated in MBSR have found help with a range of physiological and stress-related conditions including chronic pain, IBS, migraine headaches, high blood pressure, cancer, sleep disorders, anxiety and depression. MBSR provides training in meditation, mindful-yoga, and relaxation to mobilize your mind/body resources to work with stress, pain, and illness in new ways that can promote growth and healing.
The program includes eight 2 hour sessions, a one day retreat, a workbook, and practice CDs. Its success requires a strong commitment to daily practice.
