Andries J. Kroese - Professor of Vascular Surgery

Andries J. Kroese is a retired professor of Vascular Surgery at the University of Oslo, Norway, and has more than 40 years of personal experience with stress reducing techniques. He has written successful books on AT, translated into Swedish, German and English.

He has also been trained to be an instructor of mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society, University of Massachusetts Medical School, USA. From this pioneering Clinic mindfulness based methods such as AT have spread to hundreds of new centers all over the USA.

Kroese is the director of the Scandinavian Centre for Awareness Training (SCAT) and is a lecturer and course instructor for groups of various professions such as, business professionals, psychologists, doctors, nurses, teachers, students, patients as well as top-athletes. The way he teaches AT is typical for a surgeon - logical and no-nonsense.

Mindfulness har ursprungligen använts som en behandlingsmetod inom svenska vården och har med framgång spridits till andra användningsområden i samhället. Numera är mindfulness en vedertagen metod och tillämpas såväl i arbetslivet som privat.
