Abstract: This thesis is an investigation of mindfulness lessons designed to teach self-care delivered within undergraduate practicum course seminars. The lessons included instruction on and opportunities to try six mindfulness-based practices. 14 students were interviewed after completion of the course. Interview questions focused on exploring their use of mindfulness-based and other self-care practices as relating to their sense of well-being during their practicum experience. Thematic analysis was used to reveal themes in the data. Results indicate that students learned and used mindfulness-based practices as self-care after learning and practicing them in their practicum seminar. Additionally, students used mindfulness-based practices as self-care in similar ways to other self-care practices not taught during seminar.
