You will study modules such as:
HPMW7001 – The Mindful Practitioner (Schools)
This module provides students with the skills to critically reflect on their own practice within the workplace context, with a focus on schools and young people, in order to promote well-being.
This will be in the wider context of research and theoretical underpinnings, and build towards a case study of the particular area of operation.
Theories of reflective practice and case study methodology will be taught, and applied to a workplace setting.
HPMW7002 – The Mindful Practitioner
This module provides students with the skills to critically reflect on their own practice within the workplace context, in order to promote well-being.
This will be in the wider context of research and theoretical underpinnings, with a focus on good practice within a workplace setting.
Theories of reflective practice will be explored within a professional context.
Only one of the modules, HPMW7001 and HPMW7002, can be undertaken. Either one is the first module in the programme.
HPMW7003 Compassionate Practices and Work
This module will enable students to explore the theory and practice of compassion and mindful self-compassion, and the impact upon professional life.
Challenges to compassionate practice in the workplace will be analysed and critically assessed, using a range of models and approaches.
Heart-focused practices and mindful compassion meditations will be undertaken and the impact evaluated. How much of a place does compassion have in our workplaces?
HPMW7004 Mindfulness, Culture and Communities
This module considers the role of mindfulness in the context of wider social, political and organisational change.
We will critically analyse the relevant research, identifying areas where more evidence-based research may be required in this emerging field.
Nature-based mindfulness practice will be explored and its impact evaluated.
Please note, modules alter a little from year to year, owing to staff changes, curriculum development and recommendations following validation.
