MINDFULNESS: Deeping Presence in the Theraputic Setting
This experiential workshop will provide therapists with a working definition of mindfulness, its background and contextual framework for clinical application, as well as research-based evidence to support its merits. Hands-on tools will be demonstrated in how to develop (or deepen) their own mindfulness practice, as well as how to introduce mindfulness to their clients and use it as a therapeutic modality. This workshop will introduce and demonstrate tools for clinicians helping clients increasing their window of intolerance and develop a new relationship with painful thoughts/emotions/sensations. Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to be effective in decreasing symptoms of depression, PTSD, stress, anxiety and chronic pain while overall increasing quality of life.
TRAINING WILL INCLUDE:
- Research based evidence supporting the ability to rewire the brain to create more skillful and intentional responses
- Foundational introduction to a mindfulness practice, for both personal and professional development
- Skillful ways to introduce mindfulness into the therapy session
- Appropriate language for secular application of this ancient contemplative practice
- Tools for how to be more present
BY THE END OF THE TRAINING, PARTICIPANTS WILL:
- Identify at least 3 ways to cultivate, or deepen their own personal mindfulness practice into the therapeutic setting.
- Be able to discern which mindfulness tools are appropriate for their client’s presenting problems, and how to introduce them to clients.
- Be able to distinguish when mindfulness is contraindicated.
