For you?

Do you have trouble dealing with stress? Do you find it hard to focus and concentrate? This training, consisting of 6 meetings, will learn you mindfulness techniques to help you deal with tensions and reduce negative thinking. During the course, you will learn how to develop mindfulness through meditation. Mindfulness means being aware of what is happening in your experience - in your mind and your body. This helps you to take better care of yourself.

Important to know

  • During the week you will need about 30 minutes daily for exercises and recording. Discussing your weekly experiences in the meetings is an important part of the training;
  • Due to the time and energy required for following a training course, we advise you not to participate in multiple training courses at the same time;
  • If you register for the training, we count on you to attend all meetings. This is important for both your own process and the group process. If you cannot attend all meetings, see if another series is a better fit.

Practical information

  • This training is free of charge;
  • The training consists of 6 group sessions of two hours and is supervised by the student psychologists;
  • You can register if you are a student at the UvA or the HvA or if you graduated from the UvA or the HvA no more than 1 year ago.
