Course overview

Utilize Mindfulness

This applied course will focus on the practice of mindfulness within positive psychology  coaching. 

Students will learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices into various positive  psychology interventions (PPIs) they use and teach their clients. They will also learn how to develop their own coaching skills using mindfulness, and how to undertake a  mindfulness-informed coaching session.  

The integration of mindfulness within the VIA character strengths will also be illustrated.  

Since mindfulness as a coaching tool requires the coach to also practice mindfulness,  students will be shown how to develop their own coaching-relevant mindfulness  practice. Students will also become familiar with several ways to assess mindfulness  as a way to measure acquisition of these skills.
