Frequently Asked Questions
How is the Mindfulness and Strengths in Daily Life course different from the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice (MBSP)?

Mindfulness and Strengths in Daily Life is an on-demand course, open to anyone, that teaches the integration of mindfulness and character strengths. It is on-demand so participants can engage with the materials at their own pace. It is perfect for anyone newly interested in learning about mindfulness and strengths. It is based on the 8-week, research-based Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice (MBSP) program.

Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice (MBSP) is an evidence-based, 8-week program offered live several times throughout the year. With weekly 2-2.5 hour sessions, it involves group discussions, a variety of meditations and experiential activities, strengths practices, lecture/input, and homework exercises. Through the MBSP program, participants will grow in their understanding of who they are and how they bring their best qualities forward in their work, relationships, leisure, and daily life. MBSP is a prerequisite for the MBSP Certification.

How do I access my Mindfulness and Character Strengths Report that is included in the course?

The Mindfulness and Character Strengths Report is derived from your results of the VIA Survey and the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire, both can be completed on your VIA Account. After registering for the Mindfulness and Strengths in Daily Life course you will receive a credit to download your personalized report. You can sign in to your VIA account, choose the Mindfulness Report in the drop-down menu on your My Account page and follow the steps to complete the surveys and use your credit to download your report. *Only one report credit can be applied to one set of VIA Survey and Mindfulness Questionnaire results.

What if I already purchased my Mindfulness and Character Strengths Report? Can I just buy the course?

The Mindfulness and Strengths in Daily Life Course always includes a Mindfulness and Character Strengths Report. You can download the report immediately or save this as a report credit on your account. If you've previously purchased your Mindfulness Report we suggest you keep the report credit until you've completed the 8 session course. At the conclusion of the course you can retake the 5 Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire and use the credit to download another Mindfulness and Character Strengths Report. We encourage you to compare your two reports and explore how your mindfulness scores have changed as a result of your work within the course.

Will I have handouts that I can keep and review at a later date?

Yes, in each module there are PDF handouts that you can download for the practical exercises that we recommend.
