If you are interested in attending the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course at UWE, you will be invited to attend an orientation session. This will tell you more about the course and answer any questions you may have. This will also be an opportunity for you to experience a short mindfulness practice in a small group environment, to help you assess whether this course is right for you at this time.
On booking you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. Your information will be kept confidential at all times, and will only be seen by the course leader. Your information will be retained until the end of the course, when it will be confidentially destroyed.
