Summary

The Mind-Body Skills Group is an eight-week program to learn the scientific basis for mind-body medicine, while experiencing the power of the small-group approach modeled after the Center for Mind-Body Medicine. Groups focus on the interactions between mind and body and the ways in which emotional, mental, social and spiritual factors can affect health.

This research protocol aims to further understand how Mind-Body skills have a short and long term influence on stress and mood profiles and to determine the generalizability of the Center for Mind Body Medicine’s techniques.

Participants will be asked to complete a survey before and after completion of the Mind-Body Skills Group.
