Certificate in Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the preset moment. When you are mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings without judging them. Today, more and more healthcare practitioners are seeing the benefits of incorporating mindfulness in to their treatments and teaching others in all backgrounds about this valuable practice. In this certificate program, you'll examine the many benefits of mindfulness for both your personal and professional life. You'll also lay the foundation for a career in health and wellness coaching. Harnessing the power of mindfulness, business leaders have found that, in the long run, this practice offers long-term health changes that result in fewer chronic illnesses, which reduces demand on the health care system and results in fewer health-related costs in business.

Certificate in Spirituality, Health, and Healing
Spirituality, religion, and culture play an important role in health and healing. Health care systems and health care professionals must recognize and understand a variety of spiritual and religious values, beliefs, and practices and their impact on health and healing. To meet the needs of a spiritually and culturally diverse client population, today's health care system is evolving in its approach. Knowledgeable providers who can deliver compassionate, effective care and meet their clients' and patients' spiritual needs are in dramatically increasing demand. To gain a broad understanding of spirituality, health, and healing and to stay current with emerging trends, health professionals who work with diverse religious and spiritual populations will need continuing professional education.
