Course Details

Registration Deadline September 17, 2024

This interactive course is led by health experts from the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine.

These expert faculty help you understand how stress both causes and worsens health conditions. They examine the physiological impacts of stress and the influence stress has on disease and medical symptoms.

They also help you refine your knowledge and skill in using interventions that offset the harmful influence of stress. Many of these interventions are lifestyle changes that you can use to build long-term resiliency in your patients. The course includes content on the importance of sleep, proper nutrition, relaxation techniques, adequate social support, exercises that reduce stress, and much more. You learn how to guide your patients towards these behavior changes that promote health. This is ideal for clinicians in all practice settings across mental health, primary care, nursing, social work, psychology and more.

The course includes an array of resources, videos and other materials to guide you through your learning experience. All content and assignments can be completed whenever your schedule allows. Weekly call-in times allow faculty to hear and respond to your questions directly, and an interactive discussion board lets you post your own questions and interact with peers from across the United States and around the world. Plus, the course is accessible via desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

Course materials are available beginning on September 3, 2024 and all online course work must be completed by October 14, 2024.
