Stress Management and Resiliency Training (SMART) September

A Mind Body Program for Improved Health & Resiliency. Stress Management is one of the 6 pillars of Lifestyle Medicine. This is an experiential skills-based program that presents a variety of tools for helping ourselves and our patients.

This course has been approved for 16 hours CPD by the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine

This 8-week research-proven* program will help you develop self-care tools to recognise and manage your stress, reduce medical symptoms and enhance your quality of life.

You will learn:

  • How to recognise your personal response to stress
  • Meditative techniques to help elicit the Relaxation Response
  • How to change thought patterns and emotional outlook
  • Ways to improve eating, sleeping and physical activity

By understanding our own stress, and learning new
relaxation and coping strategies, we will be able to
extend this understanding to our patients in new ways.

Developed by the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, the program is based on the pioneering work of Dr Herbert Benson, author of “The Relaxation Response”.
