You will find the ABSM course in the German library of the 7Mind App under "Mentale Gesundheit" as soon as you activated a 12-month-access via your health insurance company.
The ABSM course is a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course for stress management by directing attention and developing, practicing, and stabilizing advanced mindfulness. However, it is not a complete MBSR course, as these are much more intense in regards to content and timeframe.
You can expect 8 modules of about 50 minutes each, which combine practical meditation with theory. The theory includes topics such as individual stress experience, use of inner resources, self-compassion, dealing with difficulties, and relaxed goal setting.
The individual modules are accompanied by emails with background information and quizzes for self-examination. After each completed module, you will receive an email with a handout and the next module will be unlocked.
We recommend a course duration of 8 weeks in order to be able to process and apply what has been learned. A participation certificate for the ABSM course can only be issued when at least 8 weeks have passed since the course was started.
Please note: The ABSM modules cannot be scrubbed and must be listened to in full and closed by clicking on "End Meditation" to be scored correctly.
Your health insurance company says it does not reimburse the ABSM course?
Unfortunately, some health insurance companies do not update their prevention offers regularly. Statutory health insurance companies in Germany joined the "Zentrale Prüfstelle für Prävention in Deutschland" (ZPP) and thus follow its offers. If you ask your insurer if they subsidize ZPP-certified courses, they will surely be able to confirm this.
The ABSM course is listed as follows at the ZPP:
"Onlinekurs Achtsamkeitsbasiertes Stressmanagement mit 7Mind"
Course ID: 20190910-1135696
Course instructor: René Träder
After completing the ABSM course we will issue a certificate of participation for you, which you can submit along with the invoice in order to get reimbursed.
