Welcome to Faculty and Staff Assistance Program's Integrative Health Programs. As a part of the Human Resources team our mission is to provide integrative health services to the Georgetown Community that complement our mental health services. Our programs embrace a mindfulness approach to the well being of the "whole person."
Mindfulness is "paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally" - Jon Kabat-Zinn
Our programs are designed to help you bring such present moment awareness in to your daily living and working. We offer tools to help pause, respond instead of react and bring more balance into the situations you face everyday.
What are the benefits of attending Integrative Health Programs?
- Cost Savings: In addition to financial planning seminars, implementing health care strategies suggested by health and fitness specialists may help reduce your overall medical costs in the long run.
- Reduced Stress and Anxiety: We now know that nutrition and fitness, work satisfaction, family life, and physical and emotional health issues all affect one another. Learning healthier lifestyles reduces the strain on the body, mind and spirit.
- Improved Work Performance: Research indicates that healthy employees do better work, are happier in their jobs, and are more able to adapt to changes and meet new challenges. Wellness programs on career issues are but one way to begin growing.
- Improved Interpersonal Relationships: Our health very much affects our mood and spirit. Imporving mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health improves our lives in general. This helps to balance work/life issues.
