Program Details

For psychotherapists, human-service professionals, and other psychologically minded people interested in personal development.

Mindfulness has been successfully practiced for more than 2,500 years and is a deceptively simple way of relating to experience to alleviate human suffering. Recently, mental-health professionals are discovering that mindfulness holds great promise for their own personal development, as a way to enhance therapeutic relationships, and as a useful intervention for a variety of psychological difficulties. In this workshop, you learn

  • How to practice mindfulness inside and outside the clinical hour
  • Guidelines for tailoring mindfulness techniques to different individuals and conditions
  • How to use mindfulness to augment cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and systemic treatment
  • A step-by-step, mindfulness-based program for working with anxiety, chronic pain, and stress-related medical disorders
  • Ways to deal with the obstacles and challenges that arise when working with emotional difficulties in yourself and others.

Psychotherapists, human-service professionals, and other psychologically minded people interested in personal development are all welcome to attend.
