This summer course explores Emotion Regulation and contemplative practices across education, clinical, organizational, and social structures to develop new strategies to health and wellness.

As our world becomes busier and more interconnected, people's lives take different trajectories towards new futures. This socio-cultural shift also affects our well being. But has our way of understanding individual health and wellness also shifted to adapt to the changes we see in ourselves and others?
Mental health conditions in youth and adults are an expanding and global concern. Numerous mental health conditions are significantly related to poor capacity of Emotion Regulation. Thus, learning adaptive Emotion Regulation strategies has strong potential in promoting psychological well-being, providing tools for youths to live healthy adult lives.
Interventions inspired by contemplative practices such as mindfulness- and compassion-based interventions have shown promising results as effective emotion regulation techniques. They are also effective prevention and treatment tools that have been applied in various areas such as education (for children, parents, teahers), clinical interventions (for mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder and many more), and organizations (providing new leadership styles and preventive tools against burn-outs).
