The practice of mindfulness emphasises listening to, observing and acknowledging emotional experiences and enables people to develop a more finely tuned awareness of their inner experiences and to cultivate an improved regulation of their emotional responses.  There is a growing research base indicating its efficacy to promote physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing.  It has been used to treat a range of problems including the management of mood disorders, chronic pain, arthritis, sleep disturbance, stress, chronic fatigue and professional burnout.  It will be delivered by Monique Harte & Greg Kelly, School of Health Sciences, Ulster University
