André Villanueva Álvarez-Santullano, PhD
André was a resident in Clinical Psychology from San Pau & Santa Creu´s Hospital in Barcelona, Spain. He was here in the fall of 2009 to learn more about Jon Kabat-Zinn´s mindfulness universe with Fernando deTorrijos as mentor. André believes it is the research outcome and personal experiences of clients and professionals that made our Worcester campus famous for using mindfulness to cope with stress. "Mental health professionals from all over the world are coming to Worcester to get genuine knowledge about this new phenomenon. I´m really glad to be here engaged in this great opportunity to learn the best way to serve people looking for this kind of help," said André. He has successfully completed the Mindfulness in Psychiatry Elective, a three-month psychology external rotation program and returned to Barcelona.
