Now that mindfulness practices are mainstream both in society and psychotherapy, this course will explore recent developments in their application to diverse challenges—offering clinicians and others new perspectives on how to integrate mindfulness practices into their personal and professional lives. The presentations will include an overview of mindfulness training, lessons for working mindfully in the therapy relationship, and approaches for helping adults, children and families manage difficult emotions. Strategies for working with underserved populations and employees in the workplace, and insights for developing and sustaining a meditation practice will be offered. Multiple learning formats will be used including didactic presentations, experiential exercises, case discussions, and Q&A. This course is intended for all mental health practitioners and others interested in the principles and practices of mindfulness in therapy and daily life.
Learning Objectives: As a result of attending this course participants will be able to describe the current status of mind-fulness-based training programs; apply psychological and neurobiological mechanisms of change to psychotherapy and one’s own personal practice; define how mindfulness principles fit into individual and family therapy; and explain how to overcome cultural barriers to meditation practice, manage emotionally dysregulated clients, bring mindfulness into the workplace, and use mindfulness practices to respond creatively to clinical mistakes.
