Drawing from Buddhist meditation, the practice of mindfulness has found application in therapy and research. This course is designed to familiarize students with this movement in psychology. Students learn about the historical origins of these practices and their overlap with psychology. Particular attention is paid to their incorporation into psychotherapy as well as scientific research. This course also involves an experiential component in which students practice mindfulness and meditation themselves.
