  • Mindfulness, meditation, and MBSR trainings have been shown to be helpful for healthcare practitioners including psychologists, MFT’s, LCSW’s, nurses and MD’s in promoting their own self-care and well being as well as improving their ability to guide their patients in self-care and health-promoting lifestyles. Healthcare practitioners who practice mindfulness have a deeper sense of connecting with patients, have greater compassion, and are more connected with present moment experience which results in greater patient satisfaction. Healthcare practitioners who bring mindfulness into their daily life also report less symptoms of burnout and greater resilience.
