This workshop is a great way to learn about the science of mindfulness and why it is so important in educational settings. Dr Chambers is known for his engaging delivery of a simple evidence-based message that will provide you with practical take-away tips you can apply immediately. Mindfulness can offer you an effective antidote to the stresses on placement and an anchor for practice that develops patience, nonjudgment and self-compassion. Join this session to learn a method that could boost your focus, memory and self-awareness, and improve your wellbeing and relationships on placement.
