Enrolment is now open for the Stoic Mindfulness and Resilience Training (SMRT) 2017 online course. This is a free eLearning course, which Donald Robertson has been running once or twice each year for Modern Stoicism since 2014. You can access the preliminary area now and the four weeks of the course will officially begin on Sunday 16th July, when enrolment will close. This year over 500 people enrolled within the first 48 hours after it was announced on social media. Around 650 people are now enrolled and we anticipate that will have increased to nearly 1,000 by the course start date.
In the first year, over 500 people took part in SMRT and data was collected from participants, using the Stoic Attitudes and Behaviours Scale (SABS) and a battery of validated outcome measures of the kind used in research on CBT and positive psychology.
