The Graduate Diploma in Health and Social Wellbeing offers a holistic perspective on wellness which is delivered using mindful and contemplative approaches to learning.
Our diploma program is designed to comprehensively challenge and change the way you understand the foundations and contributors to health and wellbeing, personally and collectively. An important element of education at Nan Tien Institute (NTI) is to embody self-care within the process of learning how to care for the health and social needs of others. This approach is essential to successfully addressing the inherent risks of burnout and fatigue when caring for others. The embodied, holistic and contemplative learning foundations at NTI are unique within postgraduate education.
