Seminars for employees

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction according to Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn.

The "Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction" program, which was developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at a university clinic, has been successfully implemented in companies, clinics and practices for 30 years. Scientific and medical studies show that cultivating mindfulness can have a profoundly positive impact on health. In addition to its stress-reducing effectiveness, it promotes social skills such as self-awareness, emotional intelligence, creativity, openness, composure and perseverance, which are crucial in the modern world of work but also in private life.

Course topics:

  • Dealing with stress-inducing factors
  • Perception
  • Stress - effect of mindfulness
  • Dealing with pain and illness
  • Dealing with difficult feelings
  • Self-esteem and compassion
  • Developing new ways of seeing
  • Mindful communication
  • Mindfulness at work and in everyday life

One of the goals is to develop a daily mindfulness practice at home over the course of eight weeks using three exercise CDs, in order to be able to apply this inner attitude in stressful situations at work and in everyday life.

The course is aimed at all employees.

The speaker, Mrs. Bettina Werner, is a certified social pedagogue and mindfulness trainer.

2. Resilience - The seven pillars of inner strength

Resilience is the ability of individuals or systems to cope successfully with stressful situations. Resilience research has found that people who achieve a lot in life despite adverse circumstances and feel healthy and energetic differ in some attitudes and behavioral habits from people who find it difficult to cope with crises and tend to feel permanently stressed and suffering.

Even though some of these "pillars of inner strength" are developed in childhood, there is always much we can do in adulthood to build these health factors and thus resilience to stress. In the course, the pillars of inner strength are developed together. You will deal with your own resilience profile and the possibilities to (re)strengthen one or the other pillar.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Factors of resilience
  • Self-efficacy and self-esteem
  • Developing your own resilience profile
  • Possibilities of targeted building of the pillars of inner strength
  • Exercises for perceiving and strengthening one's own coping resources

The course is aimed at all employees.

The instructor is Dipl.-Psych. Ute Breithaupt.
