Event Description

Speaker: Ronald Siegel, Psy.D.

Clinicians are enthusiastically discovering that mindfulness practices can enlighten and enliven their lives, both inside and outside the therapy hour. These techniques hold great promise for personal development and as a powerful method to enhance virtually all forms of psychotherapy.

To incorporate mindfulness into our work and personal lives, we need an intellectual as well as an intuitive, visceral understanding of the practice. In this intensive training, you will develop a solid theoretical understanding of mindfulness from both the Buddhist and western scientific perspectives. You will also receive instruction in mindfulness meditation and be given the opportunity for sustained personal practice in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

Through lecture, demonstration, experiential exercise, and small group discussion, we will examine how mindfulness practice can enhance therapeutic presence and transform our understanding of the causes of psychological suffering across the diagnostic spectrum. You will learn when and how to introduce various mindfulness techniques to your clients or patients; how to tailor practices to people of different ages, cultural backgrounds, and personality organization; how to utilize special techniques for treating anxiety, depression, chronic pain, stress-related medical disorders, and interpersonal conflicts; and how to creatively work with obstacles to mindfulness practice. While this course is suitable for seasoned mindfulness practitioners, no prior experience with meditation is required.
