This series of three audiocast programs is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which has been extensively researched for 30 years. Each mindfulness audiocast adheres to the 2015 OneOp Military Caregiving – Virtual Learning Event three-part session on Reimagining Your Skills as a Helping Professional: Working with Military Family Caregivers.

Mindfulness means:

  • Paying attention…
  • On purpose…
  • To the present moment…
  • With a non-judgmental attitude.

By listening repeatedly to these programs and using these techniques, you can discover and observe your reactions to life’s stressors and choose how to respond.
