This interactive course is led by health experts from the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine, including mind body medicine pioneer Dr. Herbert Benson.

The course provides an evidence-based overview of the basic principles of mind-body medicine. It provides the foundation you need to help your patients understand the science of how stress impacts health.

Research shows that stress is a contributing factor in many common conditions and diseases. Obesity, diabetes, hypertension, pain, mood disorders and more. This course gives you a deeper understanding of how mind-body therapies decrease stress and enhance well-being. It strengthens your knowledge and skills for recognizing early warning signs and weighing the relative risks of various conditions.

Ultimately, this course lets you help your patients alleviate stress and either prevent or relieve medical conditions. That makes this course ideal for clinicians across practice settings in mental health, primary care, 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.
