Regarding the Mindfulness Practice homework assignment, please reflect on that process and share its impact: positive, negative, or neutral. How could you use this in your own life or how could it benefit your clients?
As we discussed in class closure last week, please state 2 things that you are taking away from this course in Human Behavior and the Social Environment.
I did not care for the mindfulness practices that related to meditation like in the TedX discussion. I don;t think it would personally be helpful to me as I have my own ways of coping. I do think that perhaps for clients that do not have coping skills I could give them this information and refer them to a person who could be a better example and demonstrate to them.
I will certainly take away the importance of every stage of the lifespan from this course. Learning that the brain is ever evolving and constantly influenced by the environment is something I can see everyday. I also liked the application opportunity that the case study paper created. It helped me to put these theories into practice and apply them to a real life situation.
