CEU Course Description

Mindfulness is a mental practice and state of awareness that involves bringing one's attention to the present moment, without judgment or attachment to thoughts, emotions, or sensations. It is about being fully present in the here and now, acknowledging and accepting whatever is happening internally and externally, with an open and non-reactive attitude. The practice of mindfulness and one’s mindset can impact a physical therapy plan of care tremendously. Throughout the course, participants will explore the principles of mindfulness, its evidence-based benefits, screening tools for mental health, and its applications in various physical therapy settings. PTs and PTAs will discover how to create a supportive and compassionate environment that fosters mindfulness practices for patients coping with pain, injuries, chronic conditions, and stress-related disorders.

  1. Identify the potential physical and psychological benefits of mindfulness practice
