Participation in this workshop will enable one to learn techniques and skills that promote self-awareness, acceptance and self-compassion. Such skills empower you to break-free from the self-perpetuating cyclic cognitive and emotional patterns which are detrimental to the physical health of people with diabetes. Through guided experienced based learning and the cultivation of mindfulness (self-awareness) provide a sense of control and help choose responses to situations rather than react automatically or mindlessly.
Mindfulness is the art of becoming aware moment-by-moment thoughts, emotions and physical sensations in a non-judgemental way. In our Mindfulness-based series of courses for diabetes, this fundamental understanding is integrated with evidence based applications of mindfulness, compassion and acceptance therapies, transpersonal psychology and emotional intelligence. In particular, research on the stress and relaxation response, the mind/body connection, the soothing and contentment system, diabetes burnout and transpersonal processes associated with life changing events.
This respected fusion of mind and body medicine has proved reliable in the successful treatment of stress, physiological distress, anxiety, panic, depression; medical conditions such as pain, heart disease, blood pressure, stroke and cancer. It is recognised by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the Mental Health Foundation, both have recommended UK GPs to prescribe Mindfulness based treatment rather than drug treatment alternatives for depression (2010).
