Rockwell Automation Health Management program will now include Aware, a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction MBSR program, as a Take Action activity. Aware is an alternate modality of support for participants experiencing life stress, pain, and challenges with focus and concentration, as well as individuals who want to increase their awareness of and commitment to intentional living. With a personalized approach to applying mindful practices to life, Aware teaches participants how to be engaged, diminish distractions, and counteract stress. The program cultivates focused and resilient employees, who are more engaged and productive in the workplace.
Through six weekly telephonic sessions, Workplace Options MBSR-trained health and wellness professionals provide one-on-one support and supply electronic resources for self-guided individual practice. These electronic resources include a practice plan, journal, guided practice exercises, and additional resource suggestions including apps, websites and print materials. MBSR specialists have completed a minimum of 50 hours of MBSR training as well as additional cross-training on holistic wellbeing.
The initial session is most often scheduled within one week following the referral to Aware. This first session lasts 45 minutes, with five follow-up sessions lasting approximately 15-20 minutes. The Aware specialist schedules the next appointment during each session. In each of these follow-up sessions, the participant has the opportunity to learn and experience mindfulness exercises that they can later practice on their own.
To access the Aware program, please call the Rockwell Automation EAP Toll Free Number at 1-855-897-4044. Upon completion of the program, you must self report by December 31, 2021 in order to receive credit.
