Details :

Accordance to previous studies, over 60% construction professionals admitted that they are suffering from high stress level.  It does not only cause them both emotional and physical health problems, but also induces poor performances (e.g., poor decision-making; conflict with colleagues; high turnover; etc.).  Given the significant role that construction professionals play in the construction industry, it is necessary to well manage their stress for the high demanding tasks.


“Mindfulness” means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose in present moment and non-judgmentally.


Since 1990s, a Mindfulness-based Stress Management (MBSR) workshop has been initiated by Prof. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts.  This program has been widely adopted by various professions in different countries, and has been regarded as an effective stress management approach to release both physical and psychological stress symptoms, improve individual life satisfaction, and even enhance task performance.  Please take a look of the sharing in the website (http://www.sowingfaith.org/en/ssm-menu-en/23-tw/ssm-tw/73-ssm-comment-sharing.html). 



Sr Dr. Mei-yung Leung will be the facilitator in this MBSR workshop. All construction professionals are invited to attend.
