Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

With the rigor of OT programs increasing to meet the demands of healthcare, students are reporting stress and anxiety at an increasing rate. Infusing mindful-based interventions within didactic training and fieldwork education can have a positive effect on the OT student and ultimately carry over to therapeutic client interactions. Educators within academia and clinical settings can utilize evidence-based interventions on grit, gratitude practice, and growth mindset.
