Integrating Mindfulness into the Busy-ness of Everyday Life
1 Hour of CE
Although there is significant research support and popular interest in mindfulness, most of us find it difficult to fit into our busy lives. This online course offers a refreshingly practical approach for incorporating mini-mindfulness practices in our clinical work and our own self-care routines.
