Please join us as Dr. McCown introduces us to the Mindful Campus. The practice of mindfulness, or the act of bringing the attention to the present moment without judgment, has been the subject of much empirical and scientific study in Western culture over the past 15 years and is rapidly becoming a standard clinical treatment to manage stress and improve one’s relationships and quality of life. Additionally, it is being taught in schools across the country to help children and emerging adults to manage the emotional, cognitive, and developmental tasks which they face.
