Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
The teaching is delivered in three day workshops totaling approximately 21 hours; compulsory online discussion forums; and online or telephone tutorials to discuss formative coursework submissions. Students will be expected to engage in a regular practice of techniques learnt during taught sessions and reflect upon them using a journal.
Topics covered include:
What is compassion?
- Introduction to mindfulness and mindfulness practice
- Discovering intention: reflective practice
- Introduction and development of self-compassion
