Podcast – Mindfulness-Based Occupational Therapy at San Jose State University


Welcome to the advanced certificate
program in Mindfulness-Based Occupational Therapy! My name is Rochelle
McLaughlin and I’m the founding director and lead instructor for the MBOT program. Mindfulness is one of the greatest gifts of my life on so many levels and I’ve
been deeply humbled by and grateful for the opportunity to witness the
extraordinary healing powers of mindfulness in my own life and in the
lives of those for whom I’ve had the great blessing to share these practices
with. Healthcare professionals work in incredibly intense environments and
burnout can have a devastating impact on the quality of service that we provide
to our clients, but there is an another way Mindfulness-Based Interventions can have
profoundly positive effects and benefiting healthcare professionals by
greatly improving their morale, their attitude, level of attention, ability to
make decisions with clarity and ease, enhancing mental flexibility and
markedly improving interpersonal relationships, skills overall. The advanced certificate program in MBOT can help professionals build skills to
effectively engage with the unique and intense occupational stressors
that they face on a daily basis. This unique program provides an opportunity
to nourish your own personal and professional development and it’s really
unique way and we are building a mindfulness-based healthcare community
with the intention of co-journeying together toward greater and greater
degrees of self compassion, awareness and insight, and I’m delighted that you are
considering joining us and we look forward to embarking on this
extraordinary journey intentionally integrating mindfulness into healthcare
and becoming a healing agent for meaningful change.
