Mindfulness & Compassion Based
Professional Practice

This Accredited Training is ONSITE

Accredited Training:

This September, Dublin City University and the Sanctuary are teaming up to deliver this brand new Level 9 accredited CPD Module: Mindfulness & Compassion Based

Professional Practice.

When working in a caring capacity, the ability to maintain a compassionate presence has the potential to enhance workplace interactions and relationships with students, clients, service users and patients. Compassionate presence can also create the potential for better job satisfaction, work life balance and deeper connection with those we work with.

Through an experiential approach and a critical examination of the theory and research around mindfulness and compassion, participants will develop an understanding of the application of mindfulness and compassion within their own workplace context.

On successful completion of this course:
• Participants will have developed a personal practice in Mindfulness and Compassion.
• Participants will be able to demonstrate and have an awareness of the range of supports and tools that are utilised in Mindfulness and Compassion practices.
• Participants will have developed the capacity for reflective inquiry with self and those people they engage with in professional practice.
• Participants will be able to discuss and demonstrate the relevance of integrating Mindfulness and Compassion into professional contexts.
• Participants will develop the requisite knowledge and skills to guide short meditative practices.
• Participants will have critically appraised the influence of Mindfulness and Compassion on professional relationships.
Themes of the course:
1. History and context of mindfulness focused practices.
2. Reflective inquiry and the exploration of the relevance and need for reflection.
3. Tools for implementation engagement and development of experiential knowledge of meditation practices.
4. The claims for the impact of mindfulness and building a review of literature on mindfulness research.
