MINDFULNESS-BASED CHRONIC STRESS MANAGEMENT (MBCSM): THE STRESS MANAGEMENT COURSE
This course to is parallel to the pain course, as most of what is covered is just as relevant for those suffering from stress and stress-induced conditions. Facilitators trained to run the pain course can also run this course using the customized MBCSM workbook and the meditations created to accompany this course. Alumni from the pain course may also work with this workbook and find it to be a useful revision.
This course is particularly relevant to staff or corporations, health care workers and others in many industries and may help prevent stress-related challenges and enhance resilience.

These downloads have been created to accompany the Mindfulness-Based Chronic Stress Management course. An added bonus is the poetry which can be used to encourage thoughtful discussion during this course, two of the poems helping with the concept of being mindful (Download 1) and two poems to shed light on the formal practices of body scan and guided imagery (Download 2). Alumni of the pain version of our courses will appreciate having these meditations, too. Music plays quietly behind the introductions and the poetry. It is not used in the formal practices: Music being a distraction from simply being open with awareness to whatever arises during the guidance.
