Poughkeepsie, NY – August 3, 2010 –Health Quest is proud to present the Mindfulness Based Stress and Pain Reduction Program, facilitated by Shelley Tatelbaum, MS, CGT, Director and Founder of the Center for Grief, Loss & Life Transition.
This innovative 8-week program is designed to help people become more aware of their own ability to reduce pain, work with their fears and anxieties, and cope with the stresses of everyday life. These are the challenges that limit our way of living and looking at life — and this program is designed as both a preventative measure and as a means of assisting people in learning how to live with (or without) long-term health problems. The program is modeled on The Stress Reduction Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, and Ms. Tatelbaum was a participant in the Professional Training Program under the direction of founder Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn.
The sessions will occur on-site at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie Monday evenings from September 24th through November 26th from 7-9 pm. The cost is $385 (includes materials). Seating is limited. Please call (845) 471-5269 today to guarantee your spot and for more information.
