Description: “Mind Body Medicine: Its Role in Compassionate Care” is a four day course from Thursday, October 20, 2016 to Sunday, October 23, 2016, offered by the Benson Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The course is geared towards healthcare professionals who work with populations suffering from conditions influenced by allostasis and allostatic load (burden of oxidative stress rendering loss of homeostasis) and who plan to include self-care management interventions as part of their patients’ participatory treatment for these conditions. Scientific rationale for these interventions, evidence of efficacy, and skill development are addressed. The course will incorporate didactic lectures, panel presentations, Q&A sessions and workshops to engage learners in the educational process.
