The Integrated Stress Reduction (ISR) Practitioner course teaches individuals how to take control of and improve personal physical health and psychological well-being, in themselves and in others. This course appeals to three types of individuals: those interested in their own self development; those wanting to establish a lucrative career as a stress reduction practitioner; and those individuals who currently work to improve the physical and mental well-being of others, such as personal trainers, coaches, mentors, clinical and non-clinical therapists, holistic practitioners, educators, etc.
This course is focused on teaching how to develop and maintain a stress free mind state, through effective mind management techniques that can be put into practice by anyone.
