Event Description

Mindfulness-based psychotherapy is the most popular new treatment approach in the last decade—and for good reason. Mindfulness practices hold great promise not only for our own personal development, but also as remarkably powerful tools to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy. Mindfulness is not, however, a one-size-fits-all remedy. Researchers are now differentiating the effects of focused attention, open monitoring, loving-kindness, compassion, and equanimity practices. Practices need to be tailored to fit the needs of particular individuals—and this workshop will show you how.

We will explore seven important clinical decisions to consider when deciding when and if to introduce different practices into treatment of individuals with different needs. Once you understand the components of mindfulness practices and how they work to alleviate psychological distress, you’ll be able to creatively adapt them to meet the needs of diverse people and conditions. You’ll learn how to use mindfulness practices to help resolve anxiety, depression, and stress-related medical disorders, gaining practical knowledge and skills that will take your practice of mindfulness-based psychotherapy to the next level.

Dr. Ronald D. Siegel is an Assistant Professor of Psychology, part time, at Harvard Medical School, where he has taught for over 30 years. He is a long time student of mindfulness meditation and serves on the Board of Directors and faculty of the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy. He teaches internationally about the application of mindfulness practice in psychotherapy and other fields, and maintains a private clinical practice in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

$195 plus hst- includes a continental breakfast and lunch, group rates available.
