Event Description

Mindfulness has emerged as an important focus of several empirically supported treatments. The roots of Mindfulness stem from the contemplative practices common to both Eastern and Western spiritual disciplines and the emerging scientific knowledge about the benefits of “allowing” experiences rather than suppressing or avoiding them. Both Eastern and Western psychologies, as well as spiritual practices, are converging on these same insights. This training will be both experiential and tutorial, consisting of practice and discussion of various mindfulness exercises and practices (both in and outside of the workshop) combined with lecture and discussion of strategies for teaching each of the mindfulness skills.

The mindfulness skills taught in this workshop come from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an empirically supported treatment for individuals with difficulties regulating emotions and impulsive behavior. Participants learn mindfulness skills to use in their own practice and with clients, as well as strategies for integrating these skills into clinical practice.

The workshop is intended for mental health providers interested in personal mindfulness practice or the use of mindfulness in psychotherapy, regardless of their specific approach to treatment. It is not aimed specifically at DBT® or CBT therapists.
