Background

 

SIENCE

The NMF training concept is based on the latest findings from brain research and scientific psychology. Accordingly, its structure and content are focused on the working processes as well as the developmental capacity and limits of the human brain.

 

THE SCIENTIFIC FRAMEWORK OF NMF TRAINING IS BASED ON THE FOLLOWING THEORIES/MODELS:

  • • Dual-process theories (default-interventionist model) of human stimulus processing and attention control
    Recommended literature:   Kahnemann, D., Schmidt, T (2012) Schnelles Denken-Langsames Denken. Munich: Siedler Verlag

  • • PSI theory (personality systems interactions theory) of self-control and action control
    Recommended literature: Kuhl, J. (2001) Motivation und Persönlichkeit–Interaktionen psychischer Systeme. Göttingen: Hogrefe-Verlag

  • • Biopsychological stress theories
    Recommended literature: Emberger, G. (2015) Erfolgreicher Umgang mit Stress. Hamburg: Ellert & Richter Verlag

 

PRACTICE

NMF training builds on acceptance- and mindfulness-based programmes whose positive impact on stress, anxiety and performance has been well documented. It represents a specialisation and further development of these programmes and has been supplemented with further content relevant to learning and performance.

 

THE PRACTICAL STRUCTURE OF NMF TRAINING IS INSPIRED BY THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMMES:

  • The Mindfullness-Acceptance-Commitment approach (MAC)
    by Gardner & More (2007)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
    by Hayes (1999)

  • Mindfullness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
    by Kabat-Zinn (1979)
