INTS 475: Forgiveness/Reconciliation in Divided Communities - What is the relationship between forgiveness and reconciliation? Is reconciliation possible without forgiveness and vice versa? What does reconciliation require? What about forgiveness? These are some of the questions students will address as they explore the nature and the processes involved in forgiveness and reconciliation, particularly within the context of divided communities. This course will also address the root causes of conflict creating hostilities, affecting human relationships and tearing communities apart in the process. Students will explore the psycho-emotional, religio-cultural, philosophical and political aspects of forgiveness and reconciliation, ranging from personal, interpersonal, national and international levels, respectively.

 

INTS 475: Well-Being and Mindfulness for Helping Professionals - This fully-online course spans five weeks. It 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.
