OSU center offers meditation and stress reduction group
Mon, September 25, 2017
The Psychological Services Center (PSC) at Oklahoma State University is offering a meditation and stress reduction group for individuals who would like assistance handling stress, worry, sadness, and/or distress related to chronic pain.
“Mindfulness fosters awareness in the present moment,” said Dr. Stephanie Mullins-Sweatt, associate professor of psychology and director of clinical training at OSU. “The group sessions are a great opportunity to learn from other’s experiences with meditation.”
The group sessions are available to faculty, staff, students and community members. Participants have the opportunity to engage in a variety of exercises, including mindful breathing, eating, walking and yoga. The lessons strive to help participants manage stress and enhance well-being in everyday life.
Mullins-Sweatt is the clinical supervisor for the group sessions. Three doctoral psychology students, Emma Brett, Hannah Espeleta and Danielle Taylor, will help lead and observe the group sessions.
Sessions are at 6 - 8 p.m. each Thursday starting Sept. 28. The sessions will continue for six weeks.
Fees for each group session will be assessed based on income level. New clients to the PSC must complete a $10 intake assessment. Interested participants may register for the meditation and stress reduction group and/or intake assessment by phone at (405) 744-5975.
