Evaluating and learning from a mind-body medicine course: An interview-based study
This project learns from the experience of participants in an eight-week Mind-Body Medicine program (MBM). Mind-Body Medicine (MBM) teaches people how to help themselves by uncovering and engaging their inner resources and building resilience, broadly understood. The eight-week MBM program will be delivered through the Iris Centre for Mindfulness, Peace and Healing in Fredericton. The research will involve the analysis of interviews with participants, including those who dropped out. The intern will identify the strengths and limitations of the program as well as learn about the experience of MBM in the lives of participants. This research will support program development at the Iris Centre and contribute to the development of similar programs provincially and nationally.
