This course aims to provide students with in-depth knowledge of current trends in this area, emphasising the application of meditation practice and mindfulness-based approaches in psychology and neighbouring disciplines.
By considering a variety of current streams of research it will develop an understanding of the strengths and limitations of empirical evidence available in this field. Furthermore, the module will consider practical applications of meditation and mindfulness practices in a variety of psychological contexts.
