TRAINING
Every day, physicians, nurses, and other health care providers see patients for whom pharmaceuticals or surgery are not effective. Often these hard-to-treat patients have chronic conditions and stress-related symptoms that can be significantly improved by the mind/body interventions practiced at the Health and Wellness Center at the M/BMI.

The M/BMI's Center for Training in Mind/Body Medicine teaches these interventions to health care professionals through a range of Harvard Medical School-sponsored courses and M/BMI-based individualized training programs in specific clinical areas.

Through these courses, participants learn strategies to help their patients:

Reduce physical symptoms
Increase coping skills
Modify adverse lifestyle behaviors
Take an active role in managing their health care and improving quality of life


These programs are based on 35 years of research and clinical practice of the relaxation response and other mind/body interventions by M/BMI founding president Herbert Benson, MD and his colleagues.

In 2006, the Mind/Body Medical Institute and the Harvard Medical School Department of Continuing Education will offer:

Clinical Training in Mind/Body Medicine
Mind/Body Training in Positive Psychology
One Day in Mind/Body Medicine
Spirituality and Healing in Medicine


The M/BMI also provides one- and two-day intensive trainings in a specific field for individuals or groups seeking to provide their own clinical programs which are offered at established times throughout the year and by special arrangement.
