Badge program highlight: Mind and Movement

Mind and Movement badge

Wichita State’s badge program makes workforce training and continuing education accessible and affordable. Each badge is designed with the practicing professional in mind so coursework can be completed online and at your own pace.

The Mind and Movement badge program introduces the interaction between physical exercise and mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, including an overview of potential therapeutic uses in workplace wellness, and use as a complementary modality for serving people struggling to manage stress, anxiety, depression, addiction or PTSD. Movement as a strategy for maintaining and enhancing cognitive function and memory across the lifespan is addressed. Both scholarly literature and real-world examples of the application of physical activity are employed. Course content includes opportunities for personal application of the concepts and discussion of the possibilities for professional use.
