Virginia Tech is one of few universities to integrate mindfulness meditation into its MFT program curriculum, according to Eric McCollum.

“Mindfulness meditation helps students improve their ability to be emotionally present in therapy sessions with clients. It helps beginners, who can  feel overwhelmed, stop focusing on themselves and think more about others,” he explained.

Mindfulness meditation involves deliberately focusing one’s attention on present experience — thoughts, physical sensations, emotions — and doing one’s best to stay present with those experiences without judging them.
