Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) 

Tufts Health Plan members can save 15% on the cost of tuition for the 8-week Stress Reduction Program at UMass Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society. 

The program takes place at the Shrewsbury campus. It is designed to help people draw on their inner resources to relax, improve self-esteem, and reduce pain.

Through intensive training in mindfulness meditation and its integration into the challenges/adventures of everyday life, participants of the program have reported:

  • Decreases in physical and psychological symptoms
  • An increased ability to relax
  • Reductions in pain levels and an enhanced ability to cope with pain that may not go away
  • Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • Improved self-esteem
  • An ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations

The Center for Mindfulness is a leader in mind-body medicine and mindfulness-based treatment and research, being among the first to integrate meditation and mindfulness into mainstream medicine and health care.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Program (MBCT)

Tufts Health Plan members can also save 15% on the cost of tuition for the 8-week MBCT program at UMass Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an established program for people with depression. MBCT combines the practice and clinical application of mindfulness meditation with the tools of cognitive therapy to break the cycle of recurrent depression, and is based on the research of Drs. Zindel Segal, John Teasdale and Mark Williams, and documented in their book Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, Second Edition.

Benefits of MBCT:

  • Clinically proven for reducing symptoms of depression
  • Helps prevent future episodes for those who suffer from recurrent depression
  • Can be used together with medication, but with continued practice can help reduce the need for medication

BrainHQ™

Tufts Health Plan members can receive a 17% discount off the subscription price of the BrainHQ™ application offered by Posit Science. BrainHQ is the only online cognitive training program not just scientifically designed, but proven effective in over 70 peer-reviewed publications. Below is a description of BrainHQ from Posit Science:

50 years ago, going to the gym wasn't something the average person did. Now, it seems, everyone has a gym membership, or finds another way to exercise regularly.  We all have learned how important physical exercise is for our overall health and well-being. Brain fitness is the next revolution. Just as you can exercise your abs and quads, you can exercise your memory, attention, and more. As with physical exercise, brain exercise can help you improve your performance and feel your best.

Over time, the processing speed of the brain slows and the accuracy with which we process information from our senses declines. The BrainHQ application is designed to increase the speed at which we can reliably process information, improve the brain’s ability to make clear and strong representations of information and stimulate the machinery that produces brain chemicals that strengthen memory and enable learning.  By addressing these core issues, BrainHQ improves our ability to capture information quickly, accurately and remember better, helping us to lead more fulfilling and independent lives.

BrainHQ was designed for people who want to:

  • Improve their memory
  • Stay sharp and focused
  • Be at the top of their game
  • Stay physically active
  • Pay attention to fine details
  • Tackle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Think quickly on their feet
  • Be safe drivers
  • Improve their hearing and vision
  • Maintain close social connections
  • Find words on the tip of the tongue
