Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR)

Valerie York Zimmerman teaching

Reduce the symptoms of physical, psychological or emotional distress.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn:

Taught by Valerie York-Zimmerman. The internationally acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) for adults was created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979. MBSR is an empirically-supported, 8-week psycho-educational group intervention that teaches Mindfulness-Based practices and skills as a health intervention.

MBSR teaches:

1)   Individuals looking for Mindfulness-Based approaches and ways of managing stress-related symptoms

2)   Healthcare providers, counselors and non-profit organizations serving our Miami community who are seeking new evidence-based methods for themselves, their patients and their clients

Mindfulness-Based Programs train adults to discover their own resources and possibilities for relating differently to stress from chronic physical and psychological illnesses. Nearly 40 years of research studies demonstrate positive improvements in symptoms, attitudes, and behaviors. For more info: www.umassmed.edu/cfm/
