Section Information for Fall 2018

This course is designed to better prepare students to meet a distinct set of challenges facing professionals in careers that involve directly helping others.  Students will study research findings about factors such as stress, burnout, and compassion-fatigue that undermine professional success and longevity in these career fields.  Students will examine and engage in practices such as self-care and mind-training (mindfulness). Research evidence suggests that those in the helping professions can be proactive in mitigating and even preventing the occurrence of career-related burnout by adopting self-care and mindfulness practices. This course will equip students with information, skills and exercises that cultivate well-being, resilience and meaning in their chosen careers.

INTS 475-010 is a hybrid course. The course requires in-person class sessions August 23-25, 2018 as well as online modules for the entire semester.
